Rob Warner enters the MCLA Hall of Fame as an outstanding player.
Warner was a standout goalie for the University of California-Berkeley from 1998-2001, backstopping the Golden Bears to a national championship his freshman year. He was a three-time All-American selection at Cal.
Cal won the WCLL tournament in 1998 and 2000 with Warner receiving tournament MVP honors at the conclusion of both events. In addition, he was a four-time first team all-conference selection.
Warner still holds the record for most saves in a tournament game when he turned away 31 Brigham Young shots in the quarterfinals of the ’99 tourney.
“It is truly an honor to be selected into the inaugural MCLA Hall of Fame class,” Warner said. “I am humbled and taken back. My time in the MCLA will never be forgotten. I would like to thank Coach Proud and all of the players I played with and against for making my time in the MCLA so memorable.”
Warner graduated from Cal in 2002 with a B.A. in History, and served as an assistant coach for the Bears in his final year. After leaving Berkeley, Warner also coached MCLA teams at Chico State and University of San Diego.
