Cal Berkeley Women’s Lacrosse Names Brooke Eubanks As Head Coach; Long-Time Stanford Assistant Coach & Canadian National Team Player


Brooke Eubanks, a long-time assistant coach at Stanford who won multiple medals as a player for the Canadian Senior National Team, has been named head coach for women’s lacrosse at the University of California, Berkeley. “Lacrosse is my passion,” Eubanks said. “It's the game I love to play and the game I love to coach. Being fortunate enough to play lacrosse in college and in three World Cups was too short-lived. I knew early on that I wanted to be a head coach and continue enjoying this great sport. I can't imagine a better place, a better university or a better time to be a head coach than right now at Cal. I am thrilled for this opportunity, and I promise not to disappoint.”

“Lacrosse is my passion,” Eubanks said. “It’s the game I love to play and the game I love to coach. Being fortunate enough to play lacrosse in college and in three World Cups was too short-lived. I knew early on that I wanted to be a head coach and continue enjoying this great sport. I can’t imagine a better place, a better university or a better time to be a head coach than right now at Cal. I am thrilled for this opportunity, and I promise not to disappoint.”

During her time at Stanford, Eubanks served as the team’s offensive coordinator and recruiting coordinator with responsibilities such as in-game play calling, scouting opponents and coordinating practices. With her help, the Cardinal won four Mountain Pacific Sports Federation (MPSF) championships, garnered multiple national top-10 rankings, set a school record for the most wins in a season in program history (16, 2011) and produced four MPSF Players of the Year and one MPSF Rookie of the Year. In addition, Stanford earned IWLCA Division I Merit Squad recognition in 2011.

“Brooke has demonstrated a commitment to high achievement on the field and in the classroom for more than a decade as both a player and a coach at the collegiate level, and I believe that she will be a wonderful fit for our lacrosse program, our department and our university,” said Interim Director of Athletics Mike Williams. “Brooke brings a passion for lacrosse as well as a desire to create a strong team culture and positive atmosphere that should clearly benefit our student-athletes. I am excited to welcome her to Cal.”

Prior to her tenure at Stanford, Eubanks was an assistant coach at George Mason from 2006-08. During that span, George Mason collected the school record for wins in a season (12, 2008) and garnered the team’s highest national ranking in school history at No. 9. Eubanks served under current Stanford head coach Amy Bokker at both Stanford and George Mason.

“We’re very happy for Brooke in taking the next step in her coaching career,” Bokker said. “Brooke has been a dedicated part of Stanford Lacrosse. I certainly appreciate all she has done to help build the program. Now, she is prepared and ready to lead her own. Cal is getting a quality coach and person and we wish her the best.”

As a player, Eubanks was a member of the Canadian Senior National Team from 2003-13, playing in three World Cups. Canada won the silver medal in 2013, with Eubanks serving as team captain. She was second on her team in scoring in the 2009 World Cup, helping the Canadians capture the bronze medal.

Eubanks enjoyed a successful collegiate career at James Madison from 2002-06 where she was a four-year starter and led the squad to three Colonial Athletic Association championships. The Patriots advanced to the Elite Eight of the NCAA Tournament in 2004 and ’06. Individually, Eubanks was an all-conference second-team selection and a member of the CAA all-tournament team in both 2005 and ’06. She was also named to the 2006 Virginia Sports Information Directors’ Association All-State Team.

Raised in Englewood, Colo., Eubanks is the daughter of 1980 Pittsburgh Penguin NHL draft pick Steve McKenzie and was born in Corner Brook, Newfoundland, Canada, while her father was playing minor-league hockey there.

Brooke and her husband, Eric, have a daughter, Olive.

Cal Berkeley Women’s Lacrosse Leads 12-0 At Halftime, Rolls To 16-6 Win Over Siena On March 12


California responded in a big way after suffering two tough defeats in its last two games with a convincing 16-6 victory over Siena on Wednesday afternoon from Kabam Field at Memorial Stadium. Golden Bear veterans led the way to get the team back in the win column with five goals coming from junior Gaby Christman, four from senior Amelia Burke and three from senior Paige Gasparino. Christman recorded nine shots, Burke was 3-for-4 with free-position attempts and Gasparino also chipped in an assist, two ground balls, a draw and a caused turnover.  Cal (2-2, 1-2, MPSF) set the tone early and shut out the Saints through the first half.  "We knew this game was a critical turning point of our season," head coach Ginger Miles said. "We wanted to set the tone early and maintain the momentum throughout the game. We needed to clean up the mental mistakes that we had made in the two previous games. We did a great job today in all facets of the game." Just two minutes into the game, Christman notched her first goal of the day to give the Bears the early 1-0 advantage. That goal kick started the scoring barrage as the Bears went into the locker room with a 12-0 halftime lead.  "Gaby came out on fire," Miles said. "She really wanted to set a tone. Often times she is the spark on offense and defense, and she has made her mark causing turnovers and utilizing her speed on offense too." The huge first-half lead gave Miles and her coaching staff a chance to get more players off the bench and into the game for some valuable playing time.
