The Head Coach of the Varsity Hockey program is Brian Troy. Coach Troy is in his 7th year at Winchendon and 3rd season as Head Coach. Coach Troy graduated from nearby Cushing Academy. After Cushing, Coach Troy went on to play collegiate hockey at Southern New Hampshire University. In addition to his coaching duties, Brian is a member of our admissions team. He has previously worked as an Assistant Athletic Director before moving to the admissions office.
A standout player at Williston-Northampton School, Laura Dicarlo joined the Admissions team in 2014. It was at Williston where Laura met her mentor, Ms. Talbot Syfu. “She was my coach, advisor, and dorm parent during my high school years and she pushed me every day to be a better version of myself,” Laura says. That push helped Laura became Girls’ Varsity Hockey coach the year after joining TWS. The Massachusetts native played for Hamilton College and headed to Florida before coming “back home” with her dog Bergy, a well-behaved lab/terrier mix, who tries not to miss an opportunity to cheer at Winchendon games.
Jacques Delorme serves as the Director of Hockey. In this role, Mr. Delorme oversees all areas of our boys’ and girls’ ice hockey program. He played collegiately at Providence College.
