Kory Henkes was named head coach of the Ole Miss women’s golf team on June 22, 2015 and is amid her second season at the helm of the Ole Miss program in 2016-17.
In the 2016 fall season, scores continued to fall for the Rebels under Henkes. On Oct. 25, 2016, Katy Harris became the first individual medalist for Henkes in Oxford. Harris shot 4-under to win the Palmetto Intercollegiate. Ole Miss cracked the top 60 of the national rankings over the early season and enter the spring with high expectations.
In her first season, Henkes led the Ole Miss squad to new heights, highlighted by a seventh-place finish at the SEC Championship, which was the best finish for the Rebels since 2010 and the third best finish in program history. The Rebels also took runner-up honors at the 2016 Rebel Intercollegiate. In total, the Rebels set 10 new team or individual records in Henkes’ first year at Ole Miss and saw scoring averages go down significantly across the board.
Drew Belt is amid his second season as an assistant coach with the Ole Miss women’s golf team in 2016-17. Belt came to Oxford after serving as the head golf professional at West Lake Country Club in Augusta, Georgia and also serving as a part-time assistant at GRU Augusta.
In Drew’s first year, 10 new team and individual records were rewritten by the Rebels, and scoring averages improved significantly across the board.
