NEW WILMINGTON, Pa. - Debi Roud, a three-time Presidents' Athletic Conference (PAC) Women's Golf Coach of the Year, has resigned as Westminster's head women's golf coach. Debi, who was the pioneer coach of the program when she was hired to guide the newly established team in 2001, will be taking over as the head teacher at the Westminster Preschool. Debi will be a part-time volunteer assistant coach so that she can remain in a limited capacity with the program she helped build from the start.
Jeff Roud, Debi's husband, will be the new head coach starting this Fall. Jeff has been a volunteer assistant the last several years.
In 2012, Westminster garnered its third PAC women's golf crown and its first since 2005.
