Jon Prevo enters his ninth season as head women's basketball coach at Rose-Hulman Institute of Technology and his 21st year on the college's coaching staff.

Prevo has led the women's basketball squad to six Heartland Collegiate Athletic Conference Tournament appearances in his eight seasons as head coach.  His 2006-07 squad earned a school record 21 victories and placed second in the league standings.

The Engineers also qualified for the HCAC Tournament in 2008, 2011, 2012, 2013 and 2014.  Prevo's career women's basketball head coaching mark stands at 85-121, including the squad's first ever postseason tournament win with a victory over Manchester in the 2012 HCAC Tournament.

Prevo completed his 20th basketball season at Rose-Hulman last winter, after previously serving as the men's basketball assistant coach for 12 years.  The Engineer men's team had a record of 184-128 in 12 seasons under the work of head coach Jim Shaw and Prevo.

Prevo became the fifth head women's basketball coach at Rose-Hulman.  As associate athletic director for the past seven years, Prevo serves as the athletic department compliance officer and chairman of the college's Athletic Hall of Fame Committee.

In 2006-07, Rose-Hulman achieved 19 total school records, highlighted by the most wins and best women's basketball conference finish in a season in school history.  Individually, Rose-Hulman players earned a pair of all-region awards and two first-team all-conference honors.

Prevo, a member of the Women's Basketball Coaches Association, came to Rose-Hulman with Shaw after serving as an assistant men's basketball coach at Indiana State University during the 1993-94 season.  He previously served as assistant basketball coach at the U.S. Military Academy in West Point, N.Y., from 1991-93 and was an assistant at the University of Evansville from 1989-91.

Prior to his college experience, Prevo served as the head basketball and track coach at Cisne (Ill.) High School from 1987-89, earning league basketball Coach of the Year honors in 1987 and 1988.

Prevo earned a bachelor's degree in physical education from Indiana State in 1986 and completed coursework towards a master's degree in counseling at the University of Evansville in 1990.

Kevin Robinson helped the Rose-Hulman women's golf team shatter its school record book during his fourth season at the helm in 2013.

Robinson, who also serves as assistant women's basketball coach, helped the Fightin' Engineers completely rewrite their record book during a 2013 season that featured a second-place finish at the Heartland Collegiate Athletic Conference Women's Golf Championships.

Some of the marks set in 2013 included:
* Low team 18-hole score (324)
* Low team 36-hole score (657)
* Low individual 18-hole score (Peem Chanrotchanaphan at 76)
* Low individual 36-hole score (Peem Chantrotchanaphan at 157)
* Best Conference Championship finish in school history (2nd place)
* Lowest individual single-season stroke average (Peem Chanrotchanaphan at 82.00)
* Three of the five lowest individual single-season stroke averages in program history (Chanrotchanaphan at 82; Erin Scully at 84.83; Hayley Vonder Haar at 85.92)

The season included three of the top four single-round scores in Rose-Hulman history, along with 10 of the top 17 single-round performances.

In addition, Chanrotchanaphan earned the second conference Freshman of the Year award in Rose-Hulman history, and Robinson has recruited four of the six all-conference performers in the history of Fightin' Engineer women's golf.

In 2012, the Fightin' Engineers placed third in the HCAC with a squad comprised entirely of freshmen and sophomores.  Robinson helped the Engineers compile a fourth-place finish in the Heartland Collegiate Athletic Conference women's golf championships in his first season in 2010.  Two players, Lindsey Gault and Allison Luther, recorded career-best 18 and 36-hole performances within a two-week span of working with Coach Robinson.

On the women's basketball side, Robinson helped the Fightin' Engineers earn their first postseason tournament win in program history with a victory over Manchester in the 2012 HCAC Tournament.  The team has qualified for the HCAC Tournament during all four of Robinson's years as assistant coach, including a 2013 squad that had the third-best record in school history.

Robinson's coaching career contains significant accomplishments in both golf and basketball.  Over five seasons as a basketball coach at Bluffton High School in South Carolina, he led the junior varsity squad to a 59-27 record.  During his tenure at Bluffton, eight former players earned all-region honors, one player was named all-state and nine players went on to collegiate basketball careers.

Robinson's golf career has included work as a senior assistant golf professional at some of the nation's top courses.  His career stops have included Yeamans Hall Club in Charleston, South Carolina, ranked 38th nationally by Golfweek magazine in its list of America's best classical golf courses; Lost Dunes Golf Club in Bridgman, Michigan, ranked 41st by Golfweek magazine in its listing of America's best modern golf courses; The Bay Club at Mattapoisett in Massachusetts; Whisper Rock Golf Club in Scottsdale, Arizona; and most recently, The Landings Club in Savannah, Georgia.

His playing career includes winning the 2002 Yeamans Hall Club Pro-Member crown, the 2002 Charleston Open Qualifier and the 2004 Lost Dunes Invitational.  Other top finishes included a third place at the 2005 Hilton Head PGA Championship, seventh place at the 2005 Hilton Head Open, 11th at the Indiana PGA Monticello Open in 2013, 15th at the 2006 New England PGA Assistants Championship, a 34th place at the 2006 New England PGA Championship.  His lowest competitive round was a score of 68 at the 2006 New England Open.

A PGA of America member, Robinson earned a bachelor's degree in political science from Western Carolina University and served on the PGA of America's President's Council on Growing the Game in 2007 and 2010.  He is also a member of the Women's Basketball Coaches Association of America.
