NEW YORK - Former Oklahoma State Associate Athletic Director, Senior Woman Administrator and head women's golf coach Amy Weeks has joined the Columbia women's golf program as an assistant coach.

"Amy is a great addition to our program," Columbia head women's golf coach Kari Williams said. "She has already made a tremendous impact on the student-athletes in her short time with the team last fall. Her wealth of golf knowledge makes her particularly strong in helping players shape their individual styles of play in a way that is going to make them most successful. This has raised the confidence level of the entire team on and off the course."

Weeks joined the Lions in October after serving as the Associate Athletic Director and Senior Woman Administrator at Oklahoma State for the past seven years. In that role, she oversaw the Cowgirls' soccer, softball, women's track & field and women's cross country teams and assisted with OSU's athletic marketing and promotional directives.

Prior to her work as an administrator, Weeks was Oklahoma State's head women's golf coach from 2000-04. During that span, she directed the Cowgirls to 10 tournament titles, six runner-up finishes and four individual tournament titles. She led Oklahoma State to three straight Big 12 Conference Championship titles (2001, 2002, 2003) and one second-place finish in 2004. Weeks led Oklahoma State to the NCAA Championships in each of her four seasons. The Cowgirls' second-place finish at the 2004 NCAA Championships was their best team showing in program history.

From 1997-2000, Weeks was Oklahoma State's assistant women's golf coach. She served as recruiting coordinator and practice coordinator in addition to her coaching duties.

As a player in the mid 1990s, Weeks was a dominant figure for the Oklahoma State women's golf program. She won the 1995 Big Eight individual championship and was a member of three Big Eight championship teams. Weeks also excelled as student, earning Academic All-Big Eight honors from 1994-96 and Academic All-Big 12 first team accolades in 1997. She also was named to the NGCA All-Scholar team in 1995.

The Columbia women's golf team will open its spring season on March 12 at the Fresno State Lexus Classic at Copper River Country Club in Fresno, Calif.
