5/10/2013 9:23:00 AM Drahota steps down as girls hockey coach
The Windom Area girls hockey team will see some change at the top of the program next season.
Head Coach Dean Drahota submitted his resignation to the Windom Area school board, which will be acted upon at Monday night's regular meeting.
Drahota served as head coach of the Eagle girls for the past 2-1/2 seasons. He took over as the head coach following a mid-season resignation by then-coach Shawn Veenker.
In his resignation letter, Drahota noted that when he took the job, he would stay on until a suitable replacement was found. He noted that the program had found such a replacement in Nathan Boler, who served as assistant coach for the Eagles this season. Drahota noted that Boler is the right person to lead the Eagle program forward. Drahota added that he would like to stay with the program as an assistant coach, essentially swapping positions with Boler.
Drahota noted that he was excited about the future of the Eagle girls hockey team, which did not have a single senior on the roster this past year and was largely comprised of players in grades 7-9.
Boler, who is a teacher at Jackson County Central Schools, is expected to be hired as the head girls hockey coach at Monday's Windom school board meeting.
