Kelcy Flores begins her second season as an assistant coach with the University of Notre Dame women's tennis team. She joined the Irish after starting her coaching career as a two-year assistant with the University of Tulsa.

Notre Dame won its 12th BIG EAST Conference Championship in 2011-12, posting a 21-8 record in Flores' first season on staff.

Over the course of her two-year tenure with the Golden Hurricane, Flores helped Tulsa compile a combined record of 48-9 including two consecutive Conference USA championships and second-round appearances in each of the 2010 and 2011 NCAA Championships.

In 2010-11, Tulsa concluded with a 26-3 record that saw the team climb as high as 19th in the Campbell/ITA rankings. In addition, Flores and the squad concluded the year with a 12-3 record against nationally-ranked opponents and went a perfect 6-0 against fellow C-USA opposition.

In 2009, Flores began her coaching career by helping Tulsa to a 22-6 final record, a C-USA Championship and a place in the second round of the NCAA Tournament. The team posted a winning record against ranked opponents, concluding the year at 9-6 in those matchups.

Individually, Flores saw several Tulsa players earn conference recognition, including a record six girls being named to the all-conference team in 2010 as well as Sam Vickers being named Conference USA Freshman of the Year. In 2009, three of Flores' players were chosen to the all-conference team while Alexandra Kichoutkin was named the C-USA Player of the Championship in singles after leading the Golden Hurricane to the title.

Flores enjoyed one of the most accomplished careers during her playing days at Notre Dame. She finished her career as a two-time All-America selection, two-time NCAA Singles Championship participant, two-time NCAA Doubles Championship participant, 2007 ITA National Indoor doubles champion, 2009 ITA National and Midwest Region Senior Player of the Year and 2009 BIG EAST Player of the Year. She also was a member of the first Irish team in women's tennis program history to reach the NCAA Semifinals in 2009 and helped the squad to three BIG EAST Championships, earning BIG EAST Most Outstanding Player recognition in both her junior and senior seasons.

Flores finished her senior season in 2008-09 as a part of the No. 2-ranked doubles team in the nation with partner Kristy Frilling and as the 32nd-ranked singles player in the nation according to the ITA. As a junior, Flores completed the season ranked No. 3 in the final ITA national doubles poll with teammate Brook Buck and was ranked No. 56 in the final national singles poll. She also was a BIG EAST All-Tournament team selection in both singles and doubles as a freshman, sophomore and junior before being named to the All-BIG EAST Team following her senior campaign.

Flores etched her name into the Notre Dame record books before graduating, finishing with the most combined singles and doubles wins in program history with 265. She also left the program with the most doubles victories over a career with 155 and ranked fourth in singles victories with 110.

A native of Enid, Okla., the former Kelcy Tefft earned two bachelor's degrees in sociology and computer applications from Notre Dame in 2009.
