Chi-Hi Names New Girls Hockey Coach

Chippewa Falls H.S. News Release --

            Tony Menard has been named as the Head Coach of the  Chippewa Falls/Menomonie Girls Hockey coop team.  Tony is filling the void created when Eric Krista resigned the position last spring.

            Menard has served as an assistant coach in the program for the past five seasons.  He served as the Assistant for four years under Krista and one year under Andy Skelton.  Tony has also recently been an Assistant Football Coach at Chippewa Falls High School. 

            Tony has a strong connection to the Big Rivers Conference.  He is a graduate of Eau Claire North High School where he played hockey. 

            “Tony has been with the program for five years and has learned under two excellent Head Coaches.  He has earned the chance to lead the program and move it forward.” stated Chi-Hi Activities Director John Frizzell.  Frizzell also commented that Menard has played a valuable role in helping the merger of the Chippewa Falls and Menomonie programs.  “Tony has done many things, usually behind the scenes to help foster a smooth transition to the coop team.  With the departure of Eric, the timing was right for Tony to take a more visible leadership role,” according to Frizzell.

            The Girls Hockey season begins on November 10th with the first day of practice.  The CFM team is slated to open their season on December 2nd at Superior.
