"My time here at St. John's has been great, but I know we can achieve even more," Bishop said. "We have our eyes set on not only regaining our BIG EAST Championship title, but making it to the NCAA Tournament as well."
In 2005, Bishop brought home the first BIG EAST Championship ever for the Red Storm women's golf team, and the first for a St. John's women's squad since the women's soccer team took the league title in 1994. Under the direction of Bishop, who was the youngest coach in NCAA Division I in 2005, the women's golf team has built a reputation as one of the up-and-coming programs in the Northeast.
Not only has Bishop excelled as a coach, she posted an exceptional amateur career at Indiana University. She was an All-Big Ten Academic Athlete and four-year letterwinner for the Hoosiers. She placed first at the Indiana State Match Play Championship (2002) and Indianapolis Women's City Championship (2002). Bishop was also the runner-up at the Indiana Women's Open (2002), the Wolverine Invitational (2002) and the Big Ten Team Championship (2001, 2004).
Along with her experience at the collegiate level, Bishop has been a crucial part of many golf programs throughout the U.S. She taught at the Indiana Gongaware Golf Academy and the Williams College Nike Golf Camp in Williams, Mass. Currently, she is also an assistant at the Saint Andrew's Golf Club, which is the oldest golf club in America. In 2010, Bishop earned her PGA of America membership.
