Provo, Utah (Dec. 11, 2007) -- Sue Nyhus, BYU's women's golf head coach, has been selected to participate in a four-day seminar specifically geared for women's head coaches at all levels of college competition.

The NCAA Women's Coaches Academy provides skills, training, resources and networking for women head coaches that are relevant to advance their personal and team success.

Nyhus is one of 45 female coaches selected for the seminar entitled, Coaching for Success and Significance.

"I'm very excited to have the opportunity to network with other coaches and to learn from others in the coaching world," said Nyhus.

The four-day training will be held Dec. 13-17 at the Inverness Hotel and Conference Center in Denver, Colorado.

Nyhus is in her seventh season at the helm of the women's golf program. Last season she guided the Cougars to a No. 13 final ranking and one of its most successful seasons where the team finished 17th at the NCAA Championships, the second-best finish in school history. In 2006-07, BYU had the ninth best team rating in the nation and finished in the top five in nine of 12 events during the season. She also has guided the Cougar team to the NCAA Regionals in six of her seven years as head coach.
