Pat Conlan enters her 14th season as the Georgetown softball head coach and her 24th year overall of coaching the collegiate level. Conlan transformed the club team into a Division I program in 2006, serving as the program's first and only head coach. She will guide the Hoyas into their 11th season of BIG EAST play in 2019.
Throughout her past four seasons on the Hilltop, Conlan has led the Hoyas to 51 victories and oversaw 23 BIG EAST weekly recognitions. She also oversaw 32 BIG EAST All-Academic players.
The 2014 campaign was a memorable one as Georgetown set a program record with 26 wins, finishing with a 26-22 overall record and a 12-8 mark in BIG EAST play, earning the No. 3 seed in the BIG EAST Championship. Four student-athletes were named to the post-season All-BIG EAST teams, and junior Megan Hyson was also named to the National Fastpitch Coaches Association (NFCA) Division I All-Region Team. Additionally, the softball team excelled in the classroom, as 12 Hoyas were named to the BIG EAST All-Academic Team.
In 2013, the Hoyas finished 21-33 and 10-12 in the BIG EAST Conference, tying a then-program record in wins, including nine at home. This was the program's first ever berth to the BIG EAST Tournament. In 2012, Conlan helped then-freshman Hyson earn NFCA Second Team All-Regional.
Monique White is in her first season at Georgetown. She comes to the Hilltop from Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University (ERAU) where she served as the assistant coach from 2014-18. White supported a program that finished each season with a winning record since she joined the coaching staff. While coaching the Eagles, she monitored the team's academic success, which resulted in a team GPA above 3.10 at the end of each school year.
White played collegiate softball at Daytona State College (DSC) from 2004-06 before finishing her career at Florida International University from 2006-08. While at DSC, she was a two-time all-conference selection while also earning player of the year and best defensive player accolades. At FIU, White was a two-time All-Sun Belt selection and was named the Sun Belt Newcomer of the Year in 2007. She still stands atop the FIU all-time leaderboard for home runs in a single season with 17 in 2008; for her career, she hit .351 with 31 home runs in two seasons, both of which rank second in school history.
After graduating from FIU, White played internationally for one season with the Gryphons in Rosmalen, Netherlands. After her playing career, White served as an instructor with Game On Softball in Jacksonville and took over the softball program at Bishop Kenny High School in Jacksonville in 2010. In 2011, White was named an assistant coach at Oakland University in Rochester, Michigan. She returned to Jacksonville in 2012 to work as the assistant coach at Fletcher High School for two seasons.
White served as the head coach for the Swedish Softball Federation in Stockholm, Sweden from 2012-14 and led the team to its first gold medal in the 15-year club history as the Swedish Championship Winner. She was also selected to serve as the Swedish National team assistant softball coach in 2013 and helped Sweden place seventh out of 19 teams at the European Softball Championships.
White received her Associate of Arts in communications from DSC and a Bachelor of Science in journalism with a minor in marketing from FIU. She completed her master's degree in leadership from Embry-Riddle in December 2016.
