The 2012-13 season will be Emily Milberger's second year as head coach of the Montana women's golf program. Milberger became UM's third coach in program history when she was hired in August 2011.
The Grizzlies had a number of record-setting performances under Milberger in her first season leading the program.
Montana peaked at the right time, shooting a 903 at the 2012 Big Sky Conference championship to finish in fourth place. The score was a program-record for a three-round tournament, topping the 904 the Grizzlies shot at the 2006 Big Sky championship when they won the league title.
Olivia Weber and Tara Green thrived under Milberger's coaching. Weber had a season scoring average of 76.3, the lowest mark in program history, and Green had a scoring average of 77.6 on her way to Big Sky Freshman of the Year honors.
Green won Cal State Fullerton's tournament in February on the strength of a second-round, three-under-par 68. Her score matched Jill Walker's school-record 68, which Walker shot in 2006 at Colorado State's tournament.
Weber and Green both earned second-team All-Big Sky Conference honors, and they were two of Montana's four players -- along with Lauren Howell and Katelyn Frank -- who earned Big Sky Golfer of the Week honors.
Academically the Grizzlies maintained their strong tradition of solid work in the classroom. Montana registered a 3.32 team GPA for the fall 2011 semester and a 3.50 for spring 2012.
Prior to taking over at Montana, Milberger coached for two seasons at Oklahoma (2007-08 and 2008-09) as an assistant at her alma mater and two at SMU (2009-10 and 2010-11).
She was hired as an assistant at SMU, then became the interim head coach for the 2011 spring season.
Milberger led the Mustangs to a sixth-place Conference USA finish that spring, just nine strokes behind league champion UTEP.
Oklahoma placed fifth at the 2008 Big 12 championship and third in 2009 with Milberger on staff.
Originally from Olathe, Kan., Milberger was a four-year letterwinner and four-time National Golf Coaches Association Academic All-American at Oklahoma (2001-02 to 2004-05).
She was a second-team All-Big 12 selection as a senior and advanced to NCAA regionals in 2005 as an individual.
Milberger earned an undergraduate degree in marketing in May 2005, then worked as a graduate assistant in the OU Department of Athletics for two years before moving full time into coaching.
She earned a master's degree in adult and higher education in May 2007.
