Pat Conlan is entering her 10th season as the Georgetown Softball Head Coach and her 21st year of collegiate coaching experience, serving as the program's first and only head coach. Conlan transformed the club team into a Division I program in 2006 and will guide the Hoyas into their seventh season of play in the BIG EAST in 2015.
The Hoyas set a program record in 2014 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 post-season All-BIG EAST team, led by senior Elyse Graziano's nod to the first team. Junior Megan Hyson was named to the National Fastpitch Coaches Association (NFCA)) Division I All-Region Team. The softball team also 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, in the program's fifth season of BIG EAST Softball. The 21 wins tied the Hoyas' previous total which was established in 2008. Conlan led the team to a program-high nine home wins in their 15 total home games.

Prior to GCU, Broermann served as a graduate assistant for the Arizona State softball team from 2010-12 and later became the director of softball operations.
