Girls Lacrosse Coach Found Dead

It is with a heavy heart that we must report that the Orange County Lacrosse community has lost one of its own, Alexandra Rische.

According to published reports, Rische was found dead at her home in Santa Ana on early Saturday morning, March 8, according to an Orange County coroner’s report. Rische was 21 years old and in 2013 had led the Beckman girls to an Orange County Championship appearance as their coach.

The cause of Rische’s death at this time is unknown.

Rische was a graduate of Foothill High School and was the Junior Varsity coach for Beckman before taking over the program at the Varsity level. Recently, Beckman had undergone a coaching change and the reason for the change is unknown per Tustin School District’s policies.

Our thoughts and prayers go out to her family and loved ones.
