Brooke Martini is then new head lacrosse coach at Newport Harbor High School. Martini takes over for Matt Armstrong, who resigned back in late May. Armstrong went 50-53-1 in his six years with the Sailors and guided them to back-to-back semifinals appearances the past two years.
Martini is a 2016 graduate of Chapman University where she played four years of varsity lacrosse for the NCAA Division 3 program. She holds the Panthers’ record for most games played in a career with 69. She was named all-conference first team three times, she’s fifth all-time in goals in a single season with 42 back in 2016, second all-time in career points with 143, and was a one-time Chapman athlete of the week in 2014.
“One of the most rewarding experiences being on the women’s lacrosse team was being the captain my junior and senior year. I hope to instill my love and knowledge of the game in you and help each one of you grow as individuals on and off the field,” Martini said in a letter to the team.
