Brooke Good named field hockey coach at Messiah
Messiah College announced on Wednesday, Dec. 21 the appointment of Brooke Good as the next head coach of the Falcons’ field hockey program. Good, an Ephrata High School graduate, ascends into the position after serving for nine years as assistant coach to Jan Trapp. Trapp retired last month after completing her 39th season as head coach of the Falcons.
"I’m really excited about the opportunity to lead the field hockey program at Messiah," said Good. "It’s been an honor to work with such a well-established program, and I’m looking forward to the challenge of taking our program to the next level."
A 2003 graduate of Messiah College, Good was a standout center-back and center-midfielder under Trapp. A three-time All-Commonwealth performer, Good was elected to the NCAA Final Four All-Tournament team in 2002. She also was honored as a 2nd Team All-American during her senior season.
For Good, the chance to lead the program for which she once played is a special opportunity.
"It’s a privilege to be coaching at my alma mater," said Good, who was also a three-time All-Commonwealth catcher for the Falcons’ softball team during her time at Messiah. "I had a phenomenal experience as an undergraduate student-athlete while at Messiah. Now, I have the chance to further give back to a program that greatly influenced the person I am today. It’s an honor."
Good will take over a field hockey program that has known only one head coach since 1973-Jan Trapp. In Trapp’s 39 years as head coach, the Falcons won 18 MAC/Commonwealth Conference Championships and participated in 14 NCAA Division III Final Four games. Messiah also advanced to eight National Championships under Trapp’s leadership, with the national title having eluded the Falcons each time. Trapp’s career coaching record is 536-179-28-all with the Falcons. More GOOD, page B-4
