Brooke (Denver) Brigham was named the ninth coach in Anna Maria field hockey history on December 17th, 2015 following a three-year stint as the program's assistant coach under Sharon Zenevitch.
“Brooke is a seamless transition for the Anna Maria field hockey team,” said Laura Habacker, Director of Athletics. “She has learned from the best and has witnessed the transformation of the program firsthand. The team will be in great hands with Brooke at the helm.”
A 2013 graduate of Anna Maria, Brigham was a four-year member of the AMCAT field hockey program. During her time on the field, Anna Maria appeared in back-to-back New England Collegiate Conference (NECC) Championship games. The team won their first championship title during Denver’s senior year and qualified for the NCAA tournament for the first time in program history.
“I am excited and honored to be the next field hockey coach at Anna Maria College,” said Brigham. “As a graduate of the school and the program, I look forward to continuing the success and working with these talented student-athletes.”
Brigham inherits a program that advanced to the Great Northeast Athletic Conference (GNAC) Championship game in 2014 and the GNAC semifinals this season, along with back-to-back ECAC New England tournament appearances.
Brigham holds two degrees from Anna Maria--a Bachelor's degree in business administration, completed in 2013, and a Master of Busines Administration degree, which she obtained in 2014. She also serves as Anna Maria’s Assistant Director of Student Success.
