Stanford University women’s soccer adds Christine McBeath to coaching staff

STANFORD, Calif. – Christine McBeath has been hired by Stanford University as a volunteer assistant coach ahead of the 2020 season, as announced Monday by the Knowles Family Director of Women’s Soccer Paul Ratcliffe.

“We are excited to welcome Christine to Stanford,” said Ratcliffe, who guided the Cardinal to its third national championship in 2019. “Christine brings a wealth of leadership and experience to our program and I am confident she will hit the ground running as we prepare for the 2020 season.”

McBeath, a native of Williamsburg, Virginia, arrives on The Farm after playing four seasons at St. Johns, starting all 55 games for the Red Storm from 2017-19 as either a center back or fullback.

A captain as a senior in 2019, McBeath owns a bachelors’ degree in finance and served on the executive board of St John’s’ Student-Athlete Advisory Committee (SAAC). McBeath was also active in the community, taking part in the Big East conference’s “It’s on Us” campaign for sexual assault prevention awareness and serving for Community Mayors in New York City, an organization dedicated hosting events for special needs children in the area.
