“After 22 years of coaching at the collegiate level, I am retiring from the sport that has been an integral part of my life for almost 35 years,” Kvilhaug said. “I am simply ready for a new chapter in my life and will still be coaching as I begin my career as a life and performance coach.”
Kvilhaug was named the eighth head coach in program history in July of 2006. The former St. John’s coach is coming off of a notable 2018 season that featured her 400th career win.
Kvilhaug capped off her career as a softball coach tallying a total 408 victories, including 281 at St. John’s.
During her 12-year tenure, Kvilhaug helped the Johnnies to seven Big East tournament appearances. The pinnacle of her coaching career at St. John’s came during the 2015 campaign, when she guided the team to the program’s first NCAA tournament appearance in 35 years.
Kvilhaug also helped the Red Storm claim its first regular-season title win as well as its first Big East Tournament victory in 2015.
“What stands out to me the most however is the vast group of people who made it all possible, all the people that have been a part of my journey, too many to name in this lifetime,” Kvilhaug said.
