The only Cathy Rush appearance as a collegiate head coach lasted six short years, from 1972 until 1977. Still, during that brief stretch, Rush led Immaculata to three consecutive AIAW national titles. During that stint, Rush’s team also made the Final Four every year, and her teams played in the national championship game in every year but one.
