Cal Men's Lacrosse hires a full time Coach, a first in program history
Cal Lacrosse is pleased to announce that Ned Webster is the new Head Coach of the Men's Lacrosse program.
Coach Webster comes to Cal after nine years as Head Coach for Dominican University. During his tenure at Dominican, Coach Webster transformed a winless club into a nationally ranked NCAA program, led his team to back-to-back WILA Championships in 2013 and 2014, and was twice named WILA Coach of the Year. Coach Webster managed all aspects of the Men's Lacrosse program including recruiting, player development, scouting, competitive strategy, fundraising, and program development.
Coach Webster is steeped in Lacrosse tradition; he played high school lacrosse at Boys Latin in Baltimore and collegiate lacrosse at the University of Notre Dame. His father Mickey Webster is in the NCAA Hall of Fame and won two National Championships with Johns Hopkins, his brothers played lacrosse at University of North Carolina and University of Virgina.
"I am honored and excited to be a part of UC Berkeley and help build on fifty years of Cal Lacrosse tradition," says Coach Webster. "Cal is one of the best overall college experiences available, with outstanding academic programs and faculty, a beautiful campus and location, high profile athletics, and tons of school spirit. I can't wait to be a part of it and recruit top notch young men to Berkeley. Of the players, alumni, and parents I've had the pleasure of meeting so far, they have proven that Cal truly does attract some of the best and brightest people on the planet, and I will work hard to make them all happy and proud of Cal Lacrosse."
