Jody Fetterhoff, former head men's and women's bowling coach at Adrian College, was named the first head coach of Duquesne's women's bowling program in October of 2015.

The Lancaster, Pa. native, who brought 10 years of collegiate bowling coaching experience to the Bluff, wasted no time in making her mark on the program.

Starting from scratch, Fetterhoff assembled a roster that won a tournament title (Golden Bear Classic), defeated 12 ranked teams and placed a bowler (Kelsey Hackbart) in the Intercollegiate Singles Championship in 2016-17.

As a team, the Dukes capped their inaugural season with a fifth-place finish at the 2017 Intercollegiate Team Championships Sectional Qualifier. DU, which turned in its highest tournament average of the season at 184.46 over 64 baker games, finished 80 pins shy of qualifying for the Intercollegiate Team Championships.

The 2016-17 Dukes were recognized for their performance as one of two teams also receiving points in the final National Tenpin Coaches Association Top 25 Poll.

Off the lanes, DU was recognized by the NTCA with an Academic Team Award with a team GPA of 3.37.

Individually, Duquesne placed two bowlers on the Northeast Conference All-Rookie Team in freshman Kelsey Hackbart and junior Cassidy Powers.

Fetterhoff, who led Adrian to a third place finish in her last two Collegiate Club Championships, had 25 student-athletes named academic all-American by the National Collegiate Bowling Coaches Association in her five seasons at Adrian.

She has made four trips to Nationals - twice as a bowler and twice as a coach.

Under Fetterhoff's leadership, the Adrian bowling program grew to one of the most competitive in the region. In addition to the 25 academic all-Americans, Fetterhoff recruited and coached 20 bowlers who went on to earn all-tournament team honors.

Fetterhoff was the assistant coach at Union College in Barbourville, Kentucky in 2009-10, prior to making the move to Adrian. She was the head coach at her alma mater, Shippensburg University, from 2005-08.

An NCBCA honorable mention all-American as well as an academic all-American at Shippensburg, Fetterhoff helped lead her team to an American Heartland Intercollegiate Bowling Conference Championship in 2006-07. She was named conference co-MVP that same season.

Fetterhoff completed her bachelor's degree in criminal justice at Shippensburg in 2006 and received her secondary education certification in history/social sciences - also from Shippensburg - in 2008.

Duquesne made women's bowling the school's 17th varsity sport on July 1, 2015. The bowling program, which was established in 2015-16, began competition in 2016-17.
