Wilbraham & Monson's Hockey program has been off ice for nearly two decades. But starting in the winter season of the 2021-2022 academic year, the Titans will be back on the ice. WMA is very excited to announce that Hockey will be offered as a winter afternoon activity at the club level.
Following a national search, Wilbraham & Monson Academy has named former prep and collegiate standout Sara Ugalde as Head Coach of its inaugural Girls’ Ice Hockey team. Ugalde will take the helm of the program beginning July 1.
Contact Coach Ugalde at firstname.lastname@example.org.
