Hudson High Coach Inducted into Mass Hockey Coaches Hall of Fame
Congratulations to Coach Nanartowich on his induction into the Mass State Hockey Coaches Association Hall of Fame!
The following is take from an article on ESPN Boston:
Nanartowich, who won a Division 3 state title in 2012, was introduced by former Marlborough coach and 2012 inductee John Butler along with 20-year assistant coach Mike Correa.
“Mike Nanartowich was one who was always prepared for every game he coached,” Butler said. “He helped bring a lot of credibility and entusiasm to Central Mass. Hockey. Mike has always been a student of the game and is always looking to learn new things constantly.”
Added Correa, "Mike wrote the script on how to run a successful hockey team," he said. "Players at Hudson have succeeded because they had a meaningful relationship with their head coach.”
Nanartowich, who was named Mass. State High School Coach of the Year in 2012, expressed humility of the honor bestowed on to him. “I think the best word that describes what hockey means to me and what Hudson High School means to me is the word blessed. I've been blessed with great players and great assistant coaches. For me, it's not about numbers, it's about the players.”
Thanks to everyone who attended the Year End BBQ! Food was great, drinks were cold and the silent auction was great again! Even though the weather was just letting up, well over a hundred Starhawks players and families showed up to cheer on the Bruins! The players and family loved the bouncy tent, contests, face painting, volleyball and watching the Bruins game! It was great watching the players cheering on the B's!
Special thanks to Judi Rowe-Bond & Christine LosChiavo for organizing the event and creating a great event for the players! They put a lot of work into the event and it showed!
