SUPERIOR, Wis. -- Doug Trentor has officially been named the new head coach of the Superior girls hockey team.
Trentor has served as an assistant with the girls hockey team for the past three seasons. He replaces Marc Franta, who resigned for both personal and professional reasons after three seasons leading the Spartans.
"It's been fun. You know, I've been with these girls for a lot of years now, with Marc in particular as well, this has been a lot of fun. Working with these girls has been an absolute delight, I didn't want to hang it up, I wanted to keep going," said Trentor.
"I love each and every one of these girls, they're a blast to work with, they're coach-able, and very fun just to hang out with, so when the opportunity came up, I really gave it a go."
With current athletic director Ray Kosey retiring at the end of June, incoming athletic director Ella Olson took over the hiring process for the vacant girls hockey position.
Trentor says that it was a comprehensive search, with multiple other candidates involved in the process.
With the Superior Hockey Arena now open on a limited basis, Trentor hopes to hold their annual camp at the end of July. They also have a hockey jamboree scheduled for that time period with other high school teams, which could be in jeopardy, due to COVID-19 related restrictions.
