New Head Coach for Cougars Hockey

Stanstead Journal - - NEWS -

Next sea­son, the Cham­plain Col­lege Cougars hockey team will have a new head coach. Dominic Des­marais will take over the po­si­tion from coach of sev­eral years, Judes Vallee. A na­tive of St. Jean-sur-Riche­lieu, Mr. Des­marais has directed the Har­fangs hockey team of Le Tri­o­let high school, and he has coached two teams in the ma­jor ju­nior hockey league in Que­bec as the as­sis­tant coach: the

Voltigeurs of Drum­mondville last sea­son and the Ti­tan d’Acadie-Bathurst in 2006. The new coach’s main ob­jec­tive is to main­tain the iden­tity and cul­ture of the suc­cess­ful hockey team, to con­tinue to aim for ex­cel­lence, and he hopes that each of the ath­letes can at­tain their aca­demic and ath­letic ob­jec­tives. He also wants to pre­serve the tra­di­tion of pride to be a Cougar: “I am more than proud to be able to be a part of the Cougar fam­ily and to have the op­por­tu­nity to con­trib­ute wholly to a se­ri­ous pro­gram like that of the Cham­plain Col­lege Cougars.” The en­tire Cougar or­ga­ni­za­tion wishes great success to their new head trainer and a good sea­son for all!
