Mara Rogan has returned to her athletic roots and will be coaching the Enumclaw High School girls’ golf program.
She boasts a history of Hornet success and is remembered as Mara Koplitz from her playing days. During her EHS athletic career, she qualified for the state golf tournament all four years and was, as a junior, a member of the 2008 state championship team. During that state title run, she placed sixth individually in the Class 4A field. A year earlier, the team had placed second at the state tourney. During her senior campaign, she placed 11th overall, leading the Hornets to a third-place finish in the team standings.
Once the winter season kicked in, she put away her clubs and picked up a basketball. She was a four-year varsity player and went with her Hornet teammates to a pair of state hoop tournaments.
After leaving Enumclaw Rogan attended the University of San Diego, earning a degree in accounting. She moved back to Enumclaw, married and has a son.
“It became very apparent to the interview team that in addition to golf, Mara will be teaching our girls skills that they can utilize throughout life,” EHS Athletic Director David Stokke wrote in an introductory memo.
Golf is part of the fall sports season in Western Washington, meaning the future of the program is up in the air.
