Machado Named New Head Coach ForCBU Women?S Golf
Riverside, Calif. (June 20, 2016) – Marc Machado has been named the women's head golf coach and interim men's golf coach at California Baptist University. Machado had spent the previous five seasons at CBU as the men's and women's golf assistant coach.
"I'm excited to announce that Coach Machado will be leading our women's golf program," said Dr. Micah Parker, director of athletics at CBU. "We decided to split the golf program and have one women's coach and one men's coach. Marc has proven himself to be a talented coach who has a passion for the mission of our university and athletic department."
This past year, the Lancer women won their second straight PacWest Championship and
advanced to the NCAA Division II Regional playoffs. Erica Wang won the individual championship on a playoff hole and went on to represent CBU at
the NCAA Division II Championship.
"I would like to thank Dr. Parker, Kent Dacus and Dr. Ronald L. Ellis for this tremendous opportunity and for believing in me," Machado said. "I am very excited to continue my work with such high-level student-athletes in a Christian environment."
A national search is still underway for the Lancers men's head golf coach.
