Mark Wetmore is an excellent, excellent coach. But those of you who are younger forget history easily. Mark is not even close to the GOAT on the women's side.
Marty Stern at Villanova won six championships in 1989, 1990, 1991, 1992, 1993, and 1994. The he retired.
Patrick Shane at BYU got four times in 1997, 1999, 2001, 2002.
Peter Tegen at Wisconsin/Stanford won three times in 2005, 2006, 2007 at Stanford and in 1984 and 1985 at Wisconsin
Then you have Mark Wetmore in 2000, 2004, and 2018.
There are several who have won two titles, Maurica Powell at Oregon in 2012 and 2016; Martin Smith in 1981 and 1982 at Virginia; Tom Heinonen at Oregon in 1983 and 1987; Ray Tracey at Providence in 1995 and 2013
; Joe Franklin at New mexico in 2015 and 2017; Gina Procaccio at Villanova in 2009 and 2010
So Mark will be mentioned with the other outstanding coaches but has a long way to go. And don't even think about comparing him to John McDonnell at Arkansas.
I guess. But how many of those coaches also have 5 titles on the men's side.
