Augustana Women's Basketball Camps
Katie Bourk | Assistant Coach
Katie Bourk enters her fourth season as an assistant coach with the Augustana women’s basketball program in 2016-17.
This season will be Bourk’s sixth season overall with the Vikings, after serving as a graduate assistant from 2011-13.
In her third season as an assistant coach of the Vikings, Bourk helped lead Augustana to a 24-8 overall record and a 15-7 record in the NSIC. Augustana made a run to the NSIC Championship game after defeating MSU Moorhead in the quarterfinals and No. 8 Winona State in buzzer beating fashion in the semis. Senior, Sophie Kenney, was named to the NSIC All-Tournament team after her late game heroics against Winona and stellar play throughout the entire tournament.
Bourk helped coach two All-NSIC performers, an NSIC All-Freshman team member and nine Academic All-NSIC members. Bourk’s continued work with the guards paid off this past season as Logan O’Farrell was named NSIC Defensive Player of the Year and earned a spot on the NSIC All-Defensive team.
In 2015-16 the Vikings found a lot of success from behind the three-point line, tying the single-season record of 3-pointers made at 278. They also shot the ball well from the charity stripe with a season average of 77 percent, the third best single season mark.
Bourk helped with the development of a very young roster into a 21-win team during the 2014-15 year, which was highlighted by the selection of Shaunteva Ashley to numerous first-team All-America honors by various publications, Daktronics All-Central Region Second Team, All-NSIC First Team while also earning the NSIC Player of the Year Award.
Bourk was part of an Augustana team that went 16-12 overall and 11-11 in the NSIC - with a roster that featured several young players on it and only two seniors in 2013-14. The former Dakota State standout worked with the guards and helped in guiding Ashley and NSIC Defensive Player of the Year, Emily Schulte.
In 2012-13, Bourk helped the Vikings to a school-record 28 wins, and the inaugural appearance in the NCAA Elite Eight for Augustana. The Vikings also had a 16-6 conference record, and won the NSIC tournament, along with the Central Region tournament and advanced to the Final 4 after defeating the #1 ranked and only undefeated team in the nation.
In the 2011-12 season, Bourk assisted the Vikings to a 24-7 record, including a 18-4 conference mark. With the help of Bourk, the Vikings made it to the second round of the NCAA tournament.
A native of Blunt, S.D., Bourk graduated from Sully Buttes High School in 2006, and went on to play at Dakota State University. From 2006-08, Bourk served as a student-assistant coach, where the Lady T’s made it to the NAIA National Tournament both years, and advanced to the Sweet 16 in 2008. In her first season as a player, she picked up All-Dakota Athletic Conference honors in 2009 after averaging 13.1 points and 5.4 rebounds per contest. Bourk ranks 4th all-time at DSU in 3 pointers made (164) and in 3-point field goal percentage.
Bourk resides in Sioux Falls and earned her bachelor's degree in physical education from DSU in 2011. She earned her master's degree in sports administration and leadership at Augustana in 2014.
