Kate Drohan won her 500th game at the helm of the Wildcats in Wednesday’s 9-1 win over crosstown rival Loyola.

Drohan is in her 15th season leading Northwestern. She served as an assistant for four seasons before taking over the head coaching position ahead of the 2002 season. 

Drohan has led the Cats to 10 NCAA Tournament appearances. NU has won two Big Ten championships and advanced to a pair of Women’s College World Series under her direction. 

Drohan ranks second on the all-time wins list, trailing long-time coach Sharon Drysdale. In 23 years leading the Cats, Drysdale won 640 games. 

The Cats return to action with a three-game weekend series at Wisconsin.
