UNB hires hockey coach

A new head coach has been hired for the women’s varsity hockey team as U-N-B brings back the cancelled program.

The university downgraded the women’s varsity team to a sports club in 2008 for budgetary reasons. A former player appealed to the province’s Labour and Employment Board claiming discrimination. The Board agreed and ordered U-N-B to reinstate women’s hockey.

The new coach is Sarah Hilworth, who comes from Olds College in Alberta.
