The UWindsor athletics department has appointed the first full-time head coaches in program history for two varsity teams: Kevin Hamlin to men’s hockey and James Gravelle to men’s volleyball.
Hamlin has served as head coach on a part-time basis since 2008. In that time, his team won a provincial title in 2013, twice qualified for the national championship tournament, and made the playoffs in nine straight seasons. Ontario University Athletics twice named him coach of the year in his sport.
Gravelle has coached his squad in a part-time position since 2013. Last season, his team won its first-ever provincial medal, a bronze, and appeared for the first time in the national championship tournament.
Athletics director Mike Havey called it a positive trajectory.
“In a full-time role, James will be able to continue to build on the significant program progress that he has been able to achieve in his first five years as head coach,” Havey said. Read the full story at goLancers.ca.
