Wallace Joins California Staff

from press release

 – Emma Wallace became the newest member of the California lacrosse team on Thursday, when first-year head coach Ginger Miles announced the hiring of her assistant coach. Wallace previously served as the varsity head coach of the Georgetown Visitation Preparatory School in Washington, D.C., and played collegiately at Johns Hopkins.

"Emma brings with her a great playing career at Johns Hopkins and was mentored by and worked with the great Janine Tucker there," Miles said. "She has a good amount of coaching experience already, having coached at a couple of different high schools and leading her team to a great 14-4 record last year at Georgetown Visitation. She's not unfamiliar with the recruiting game and also brings with her a marketing background, which will be a great addition to the staff. I'm excited about her passion for lacrosse, her excitement for the game and her desire to continue the growth of the sport out here on the West Coast."

Wallace, a 5-10 defender, played at Johns Hopkins from 2004-07 and was a member of three NCAA Tournament squads.

Prior to Georgetown Visitation, she was the varsity head coach at the Highland School in Warrenton, Va., and the head coach of the Upper Corner Lacrosse Club in northern Virginia. She has worked in various capacities outside of the lacrosse world, including as a marketing coordinator for Stanley, Oberon Division.

"The athletic program out here is fabulous," Wallace said. "Cal presents a really good opportunity in the lacrosse community to be a great program. The resources in place for the student-athletes are fabulous. What a great opportunity to be a part of a growing lacrosse program. I'm excited to be out here."

Wallace, whose father is British, is a dual citizen of the United Kingdom and the United States.
