Murray State announced Friday the contract of coach Kara Amundson has been extended through the 2025 season. Amundson just completed her 10th season with the Racers and led them to their first-ever OVC regular-season and tournament championships, followed by the program’s first NCAA regional appearance.

In 2022, the Racers won 40 games, the most in program history, one of just 35 teams nationally to reach the 40-win milestone. The Racers also won the most conference games (21) and home games (18) in program history. Amundson was also named Ohio Valley Conference Coach of the Year.
