Beau Taber, Head JV Coach 

Beau has played lacrosse for 10 years. Her mother signed her up in 6th grade and she played a little of all the positions. When she got in the goal and started making saves, none of the other positions made her feel as amazing as she felt in all her goalie gear.

Beau was born in California and moved to Portland when she was young. Went to West Sylvan and Lincoln High School, she is currently working on a transfer to PSU to pursue a teaching degree.

Beau has coached the Lincoln girls youth for the past 5 years and loves it. She loves being a part of a team and encouraging young women to be supportive of one another and work together as one strong unit.

"There isn't anything that I love more than coaching the younger generation. My favorite memories are experiences with the girls I've taught. Watching them grow and take what I've taught them into a game is the most wonderful feeling I've ever experienced."
