FOR RELEASE: Immediate, Thursday, Jan. 7, 2010

The Hudson Valley Athletic Department has announced the hiring of Cathie Olf as the school's first women's golf coach. This spring will be the first season that the Lady Vikings will compete in NJCAA golf.

Olf, an avid golfer and a physical education teacher in the East Greenbush Central School District for 29 years, inherits the task of building the new program from the bottom up. She has spent a lot of time in recent years teaching the game at the Burden Lake Junior Golf Clinic and organized the Susan G. Komen Rally Cure Golf tournament that helped raise over $11,000. Her vast experience with local youth within the sport gives her a great opportunity to recruit local golfers to attend Hudson Valley Community College.

Olf has also coached cross country and track at Columbia High School for more than 20 years.
