In her fourth season as an assistant coach for the women's soccer program is Gentry Detter.

Detter helped TU post an 8-9-2 overall record and pick up three wins in Conference USA play in 2010. The Golden Hurricane scored 31 goals, 18 of which were scored by freshmen, and had a .495 shots-on-goal percentage. Freshman midfielder Jordan O'Brien was tabbed as the C-USA Freshman of the Year, while both Claire Nicholson and O'Brien were selected to the All-Freshman Team and earned All-C-USA honors.

In 2009, Tulsa concluded the season with a 7-10-2 overall record, including five shutout victories, and a 4-7 mark in C-USA. TU scored 25 goals, four more than its opponents, and had a .490 shots-on-goal percentage. Four players earned all-C-USA accolades, the first for Tulsa since joining the league in 2005.

In her first year, Detter helped TU register an 8-9-3 record and 41 goals in 2008, nearly tripling the win total and scored almost six times as many goals as the 2007 edition. The Golden Hurricane recorded seven shutouts on the year, and 17 student-athletes scored goals, including 11 players with multiple goals.

Detter came to Tulsa after serving one year as the assistant girls soccer coach at Claremore High School, where she helped the team advance to the state quarterfinals in 2007.

A four-year letterwinner at Oral Roberts University, Detter earned Summit League honors all four years of her career (2004-07). She was named the Summit League Defensive Player of the Year in 2004 and 2005, and was selected as the conference tournament Most Valuable Player in 2004 after recording the game-winning goal that gave ORU its first-ever NCAA tournament appearance. Detter concluded her career as the school record-holder for assists with 25.

A native of Claremore, Okla., Detter received her bachelor's degree in mass communications from Oral Roberts in May 2007.
