Head Coach Gene Stillman
Gene Stillman was named the first head women's golf coach in Mt. San Jacinto College history prior to the 2009 season. Gene started the program from scratch that year and was able to produce a fourth place finisher in the state individual competition. In his second season Gene helped guide the Lady Eagles to the Foothill Conference team championship. Once again MSJC produced a top 5 finisher in the state championships. For his efforts Gene earned Foothill Conference Coach of the Year honors for the 2010 season.
This past season in 2012 Coach Stillman once again led the Lady Eagles to the Foothill Conference title and his team advanced to the Southern California Regionals for the third straight year. Only one other college has qualified for the So. Cal Regionals three straight seasons. 2012 also marked the fourth year in a row that the Lady Eagles had an individual qualify for the state championships, which again only one other college has done. Coach Stillman was named the Co-Coach of the Year in the conference for the second time in three seasons.
The Lady Eagles are also developing a solid track record for moving players on to the four year level, including full athletic scholarships at NCAA Division I and II institutions and academic scholarships at an NCAA Division III institution. Over the past three seasons MSJC has more Foothill Conference victories than any other team with 82. The next closest school is at 55.
Gene has coached a variety of sports through out his career and is also an attorney. Coach Stillman played college golf at both the University of Wisconsin-Green Bay and UW-Milwaukee. Gene is a native of Madison, Wisconsin.

San Jacinto College to earn her AA degree. In the Fall of 2013, Tina will be heading down the road to attend Cal Baptist University, in Riverside, on a full athletic scholarship where she has verbally committed to Coach Lane Pace to attend to earn her 4 year degree in graphic arts and continue playing intercollegiate golf for the Lady Lancers in the NCAA Division II Pacific West (PacWest) Conference.
Tina, during her two years at MSJC, was recognized as the Most Valuable Player in the Foothill Conference in 2010 and 2011, earned CCCAA All-Southern California First Team honors in 2010 and 2011, and was named to the CCCAA All-State Team in 2010. In 2011, Tina was recognized as the best female golfer in the CCCAA and likely would have won the CCCAA State Championship after shooting even par and having a four stroke lead following the first day of competition, but she was disqualified after the round for a scorecard error. She also led the 2010 Lady Eagles team to the Foothill Conference Championship with a 40-4 record and led her 2011 MSJC squad to a Conference leading 57 wins over her two years of competing in 2010-2011, as well as being the only Foothill Conference team to qualify for the CCCAA Southern California Regional in both 2010 and 2011.
