Thurston girls coach still optimistic about postseason

By Pierre Weil / [email protected]

EUGENE – Macy Youngbauer took over as head coach of the Thurston Colts girls basketball on Jan. 5 after Steve Eastburn stepped down due to personal reasons.

Youngbauer played for Thurston from 2013-17, was an assistant coach for JV from 2019-21, and became the main varsity assistant last year. Now she takes over in the middle of the season with Thurston sitting at 7-7 and in the playoff hunt.

“I really just want to grow off of what coach Eastburn built here, and really continue with a lot of things that he did,” Youngbauer said. “So really trying to keep things, for the most part, the same, so that it’s not too much of a change for the kids.”

Youngbauer’s first game as head coach was a 47-45 win over Ashland two days after she found out about the coaching change. Then last week the Colts beat Churchill 53-45 before falling at Class 4A No. 10 Marist Catholic 56-46.
