Victoria Fallgren is entering her fifth year as assistant coach at Gonzaga, her alma mater. She assists with day-to-day coaching and operations of the program while coordinating the team's recruiting efforts.
Between her four years as a player and four as an assistant coach, Fallgren has been around for the program's rise into a perennial postseason contender. During her senior year, she led the Bulldogs to their first NCAA Tournament appearance, and she's helped them return twice while a staff member. In 2016, she saw another milestone for the program as Fallgren coached Bianca Pagdanganan in the NCAA Championships; Pagdanganan is the first Gonzaga golfer -- male or female -- to reach the national tournament. She returned in 2016-17 with Fallgren by her side at the NCAA Championships in Sugar Grove, Ill., where she set a school record finishing 66th.
Also under her tutelage, the Zags improved on the team's scoring average during her first three seasons as a coach, and in September 2014, they were ranked #21 in the nation by GolfWeek, the program's highest-ever ranking.
Prior to coaching, Fallgren was one of the top golfers in Gonzaga history. She became the first Bulldog to win the West Coast Conference title in 2012 and led the Zags to four team tournament wins as a senior in 2012-13. Individually, the Lakewood, Calif., native tallied two tournament wins, 10 top-5 finishes, and 18 top-10s throughout her four years. Also, she's tied with the third-lowest round in Gonzaga history, a 67 in her final round at the Bulldog and Eagle Invitational in 2009. That tournament was Fallgren's first collegiate competition, and she won the tournament by four strokes.
The three-time All-WCC honoree also saw success outside of collegiate golf, qualifying for the US Women's Amateur Public Links Championship three times and the US Amateur twice. She advanced to match play in the 2010 and 2012 Public Links Championships. She won the Washington State Mid-Am in the summer of 2017.
Fallgren received her Master's degree in sport and athletic administration from Gonzaga in 2015 and a Bachelor's degree in classical civilizations in 2013.
