WATERVILLE, Maine - Holley Tyng, interim head coach of the Colby College women's hockey team, was officially named head coach of the Mules' program.
"Holley has a great hockey mind. She brings a wealth of coaching experience and a strong understanding of what it takes to pursue excellence on and off of the ice in an elite academic environment," said Tim Wheaton, the Harold Alfond Director of Athletics. "During her time as our interim coach, Holley has made herself an integral part of the community, both for her players and peers."
Tyng jumped right in despite her late start. "(Colby) had really great leadership in the locker room from our six seniors. They were really on board and that was important for us," Tyng said. "The players were very accepting of a new perspective. They did everything we asked them to do and we threw a lot at them."
"We were faced with some challenges and the players never quit," Tyng said. "They would show up on Monday after a long weekend with smiles on their faces, ready to get prepared for the next game."
Prior to Dartmouth, Tyng was the head coach of girls' hockey at Tabor Academy, her alma mater. She had a 23-10-5 record in two years.
