A New Westminster lacrosse alumna is joining the brass of Canada's national governing body for the sport.

Ashley Bull recently earned a spot with Lacrosse Canada as its new high performance coordinator.

The former women's Salmonbellies player, and current coach of B.C. provincial under-19 female squad, is set to help deliver programming and ensure standards are met for events like team selection camps.

"We are excited to work with Ashley and know she will continue to grow the game across Canada," a release reads from Lacrosse Canada.

Bull first hit the concrete floor in Langley with the boys' lacrosse leagues before finding the New West girls box program in 2007, the year she was also introduced to field lacrosse.

At the collegiate level, she won four Metro Atlantic Athletic Conference field lacrosse championships with Canisius College, served as captain in her final two seasons and was named a first-team all-star three times.

Bull obtained a Bachelor of Science in Health and Wellness and Master of Science in Sport Administration while at the private Buffalo, N.Y., institution.

Bull also won the Women's Arena Lacrosse League (WALL) West Championship in back to back seasons (2023, 2024) as a member of the Flying Squirrels.

On the world stage, she first competed for Canada at 16 years old, winning bronze with the under-19 women's national field lacrosse team in 2011.

As a certified coach of 10 years, she guided B.C.'s first-ever Canada Summer Games female box lacrosse team to a silver medal at Niagara 2022.
