The Connecticut Ice Hockey Officials Association of Connecticut on April 1 awarded Loomis Chaffee Athletic Director and Head Boys Hockey Coach Bob Howe '80 the Coach of the Year Award.
The award is given annually to a boys prep school ice hockey coach for outstanding leadership in sportsmanship and team play. The award also recognizes the Loomis Chaffee team for its conduct with officials and opponents.
When asked about receiving the award, Coach Howe responded, "This is a nice honor for this team and our program. When a group of athletes focus on common team goals, this leaves very little room for bad behavior on the ice. I was very pleased with the effort from this group. It sets the stage for even better things to come."
