Citadins Announce Coaching Additions

With yesterday's announcement of 3 new recruits, Head Coach Olga Hrycak and her UQAM Citadins will have a fresh new set of faces on the floor. Hrycak also announced that UQAM will have a pair of new faces on the sidelines working with her as the Citadins look to replace the retired Carlo Galli as assistant coach with former McGill assistant and head coach Nevio Marzinotto and graduating senior Marc-Olivier Beaucamp. Marzinotto worked on the McGill staff for many years with Ken Schildroth and then assumed the head role for 3 seasons before moving on to become Head Coach & General Manager of the ABA's Montreal Martix. "Nevio brings a wealth of experience to our program and it was an easy decision to bring him on board when we found out he was interested", stated Hrycak. As well, the recently-graduated Beaucamp, one of the stalwards during the Citadins young history as a CIS program, will join the staff. The Citadins also announced that they will host American International University, an NCAA Division II program, during the Thanksgiving weekend in early October and then travel to the University of Maine to play the Golden Bears, an NCAA Division 1 program, in November. Hrycak may have a couple of more recruits to announce in the coming weeks. Stay tuned.
