Career—Coleman has emerged as the team leader for the Buffaloes as one of three upperclassmen on the squad and a key ingredient over the past two seasons, the two best seasons in CU history. Her career stroke average of 75.46 is the third best in CU history for those with 50-plus rounds played and as soon as she gets to the 100 round plateau, she will be No. 2 on that list for best career stroke average. She has played in 28 events and 84 rounds in her career with one victory, three top five finishes, six top 10 and 12 top 20 performances. She has three rounds in the 60s and 69 in the 70s. She has 13 subpar rounds and 18 total rounds at or under par in her career.
College-2012-13 (Sr.)-Coleman concluded one of the best fall seasons in CU history, compiling a stroke average of 73.42 over four tournaments and 12 rounds. She opened the season with a 39th place finish at the Ptarmigan Ram Fall Classic in Fort Collins and then caught fire at the New Mexico Invitational. She shot a 70-70-68—208 on the par 73 course to finish at 11-under par, setting a new CU record in the process. The 208 by itself is a new 54-hole mark in the CU record book on any par course, while her 11-under par bested the previous mark by four strokes. She continued her stellar play at the Windy City Classic, shooting a 4-over par 220, good for 13th place, and she ended the fall season with a 8-over par 224 at the Tar Heel Invitational to finish 30th. She was 1-over through two rounds and within reach of the leaders entering the final round.
2011-12 (Soph.)-She cemented herself one of the five golfers in the rotation on the best team in school history behind three of the best players in program history. CU had two significant firsts by becoming the first top 10 ranked team in program history and advancing to the NCAA Championships for the first time in program history. Her stroke average of 75.08 was third best on the team and also the seventh best mark in CU history. Her spring stroke average of 74.92 is the fifth-best mark in school history as the top six places on that chart have happened from 2010-11 and 2011-12. She had two top five and five top 10 performances on the season with two rounds in the 60s and 30 more in the 70s. She had six subpar rounds and three more at even par. She opened the fall season with a fifth place finish at the Ptarmigan Ram Classic, her first top five finish, by shooting a 2-over par 218 through 54 holes. She then finished 10th at the Edean Invitational, helping the Buffs to the tournament win with a 10-over par 226. When she was at her best, the Buffs were at their best. In the spring season, she finished tied for sixth at the Clover Cup and third at the Anuenue Spring Break Challenge, both of which the Buffs won, and 10th at the NCAA West Regional at Colorado National Golf Club when the Buffs advanced to the NCAA Championships for the first time. At both the Clover Cup and Anuenue, she finished at 4-over par 220 while she matched her 54-hole best of 4-over par 218 at the NCAA West Regional. She shot a 3-over par 69 in the second round of the Clover Cup and then was integral in the Buffs comeback at the NCAA West Regional. Her final round 3-under par 69 there helped the Buffs to a 9-under team score as the Buffs improved from ninth to fourth over the course of the final round. She then shot a 10-over par at the NCAA Championships with a solid 76-73-74-75—298 scorecard.
2010-11 (Fr.)-Coleman got her career off to a great start, completing one of the best freshman seasons in CU history. She was the only player on the team to improve her stroke average from the fall to the spring and she sliced over two-and-a-half strokes off her average, improving from 78.07 in the fall to 75.45 in the spring. Her spring stroke average was third best on the team but fifth best in school history and her overall average was fourth best. Her 35 rounds tied the record for most in school history. She had five top 20 finishes, four in the spring, and 28 of her 35 rounds were in the 70s, tied for fifth best in school history. She had three rounds under par and one more at even par, with all four of those rounds in the spring. Her best finish of the season was an 11th place at the San Jose Spartan Invitational, the second tournament of the spring where she posted her first career round at or under par with an even-par 72 in the first round. She also tied for 12th twice, ironically at the two events that CU hosts, the Heather Farr Memorial at CU’s Colorado National Golf Club in the fall and the MountainView Classic in Tucson, Ariz., in the spring. At the MountainView, she went under par in each of the second two rounds, and then she became the fourth player in school history to post three straight rounds under par when she scored a 1-under par 71 to open the inaugural Pacific Coast Collegiate. Her 76-71-71—218 score card at the MountainView was her best of the season and represents her best 54-hole score. She ranks tied for second on the list for most consecutive rounds under par. To open the spring, she had four top 20 finishes in the first five tournaments and finished tied for 25th in the other, the Gator Women’s Invitational. In the post season, she placed tied for 43rd at the Big 12 Championships and tied for 69th at the NCAA East Regional, shooting 14-over par 230 both times.
