In 2021, Bray helped lead the Commodores to the NCAA Tournament and guided the offense that saw Gabby Fornia set the single-game, season and career assists record.
Bray brought nearly three decades of coaching experience to West End, including 13 seasons as an associate head coach and assistant coach at Oregon.
For four seasons, Bray served as head coach for the lacrosse and field hockey programs at St. Mary’s College (Md.).
Bray was also the director of player development in the Willamette Valley for Lacrosse Northwest, and head coach of Churchill High School girls lacrosse in 2017 and 2018, leading them to back-to-back league titles and state playoff berths.
