Kaelin Named Assistant Coach
July 19, 2017
FORT WORTH, Texas -- TCU head women’s golf coach Angie Ravaioli-Larkin has announced the hiring of Andrea Kaelin as an assistant coach.
Kaelin comes to the Horned Frogs after serving the last four years as head coach at Redlands Community College in El Reno, Okla.
“I am excited to welcome Coach K to the FrogFam as our new assistant,” Ravaioli-Larkin said. “She has worked her way up through the coaching ranks and has proven to be driven, competitive, passionate and dedicated to serving young athletes to be the best they can be on and off the golf course.
“She fits into the first-class culture at TCU and our women’s golf program. She will help us continue to lead our team to national prominence.”
Kaelin led Redlands to three National Junior College Athletic Association (NJCAA) National Championship appearances. Each trip resulted in a sixth-place finish. Her squads totaled 11 regular season tournament wins, four consecutive regional championships and a high transfer rate of players to NCAA Division I. She also recruited the No. 1-ranked junior in South Africa.
“I am overwhelmed with excitement to join the Frog Family and the women’s golf program,” Kaelin said. “I want to extend my sincere gratitude to Coach Larkin and all of the hiring committee, including Jill Kramer, Haley Schoolfield and former players Lori Roditi and Brooke Tull for this incredible opportunity.”
Kaelin is a 2012 graduate of Florida State with a degree in professional golf management. She was a member of the women’s golf program and part of three consecutive Seminoles’ teams to reach the NCAA Regionals and earn a top-25 ranking.
Before arriving in Tallahassee, Kaelin played two seasons at Redlands Community College. She graduated cum laude and as a member of the Phi Theta Kappa Honor Society. She helped lead Redlands to the NJCAA National Championship in both 2008 and 2009. She finished in third place in the individual standings at the 2009 NJCAA Championship and was a first-team All-American. She was a 2008 USGA Amateur Championship Qualifier.
Before returning to Redlands as head coach, Kaelin worked at several golf clubs as a golf professional and in management capacities.
