Centralia Names Brinkmann Girls Basketball Coach

Centralia named Megan Brinkmann its head girls basketball coach Tuesday. Brinkmann coached Eugene girls basketball the last four seasons and served as the school’s athletic director. The Lady Eagles captured three consecutive district championships before a 10-16 finish this season. Eugene reached the state quarterfinals in 2021. Brinkmann previously guided the Bowling Green girls to the 2018 district title after two seasons as a Lady Bobcat assistant. The Winfield High School graduate played for William Woods from 2008-2012 then worked two years as a graduate assistant. Brinkmann replaces Becca Schemmer as Centralia girls coach. Schemmer resigned in March after five seasons. Brinkmann’s contract becomes official at next Monday’s board meeting.
