A four-year collegiate letterwinner, Lene Krog returns for her fourth season as East Carolina's volunteer assistant coach. A graduate of the University of Virginia, Krog helped the Cavaliers to a pair of NCAA Championship appearances, including an eighth place finish in 2009, while helping the Pirates in 2006 to its first ever Conference USA Championship crown.
The winner of the 2008 Norwegian Women's Amateur, Krog received a sponsor's invite to the Ladies European Tour event (SAS Masters) in Oslo where she made the cut. Krog also advanced through the 2008 U.S. Open Local Qualifiers to the tournaments sectional rounds.
While at UVA, Krog was first-team All-Atlantic Coast Conference selection as a junior and recorded eight top-15 finishes in her two-year stint. During her junior campaign she led the Cavaliers with a 74.77 stroke average and was the team's top finisher at the 2008 NCAA Championships with a 28th-place effort. Her senior season was slowed due to surgery on her knee, but she still managed to rank among the ACC leaders in scoring (15th) with a 75.41 scoring average.
Before heading to UVA, Krog spent her first two collegiate seasons at ECU leading the Pirates to the NCAA East Regional's after claiming medalist honors at the 2008 C-USA Championships. Krog, who finished ninth at the regional, became just the second player in school history to qualify for the NCAA Championships, following Adrienne Millican in 2004.
Despite playing only two seasons, Krog left her mark on the Pirate program leaving as the school's career stroke average leader (75.07) and single-season stroke leader (74.52 in 2005-06), while sharing the record for low-round of 67, which was recorded in the spring of 2007 at the NCAA East Regional. The C-USA Freshman-of-the-Year selection and two-time All C-USA performer also has a pair of tournament titles under her belt and recorded 15 top-10 placements in 20 Pirate events.
For her collegiate career she posted a 75.07 stroke average in 40 events where she recorded 19 career top-10 placements and made three NCAA Championship appearances. Off the course Krog was a two-time National Golf Coaches Association (NGCA) All-American Scholar, C-USA Commissioner's Academic Medal Winner and C-USA Commissioner's Honor Roll recipient.
