After a series of l0th and 11th-place finishes under Coach Cheryl Littlejohn, Women's Athletics Director Chris Voelz brought in Coach Oldfield to turn around the program. An Iowa native with previous experience at Ball State, Oldfield produced immediate results. The team improved to a record of 22-8, finished second in the Big Ten and defeated UNLV before losing to North Carolina in post-season NCAA play. After one season at Minnesota, she resigned to become head coach at Maryland, changed her name to Brenda Frese and won the National Championship in 2006.
