CANTON, N.Y. (WWNY) - After a nearly two month search, it appears the St. Lawrence Men’s Hockey Team has a new head coach, and they didn’t have to look any further than 10 miles up the road.
College Hockey News is reporting that Clarkson Assistant, Brent Brekke, will be named the Saints new coach early this week. Brekke is a longtime hockey assistant, spending 9 years at Cornell and 10 years at Miami before joining Casey Jones' staff at Clarkson last season. It was reported that both Brekke and Tri-city Storm head coach, Anthony Noreen, were on the St. Lawrence campus this week interviewing for the job. Brekke would replace Mark Morris, who was fired after 3 years at the helm of the Saints.
One week from today, the Watertown Rapids open their 2019 Perfect Game Collegiate Baseball League season at home. Year two looks to be an exciting and improved one for the team.

General Manager Brandon Noble has been busy getting feedback from the fans to make their experience at the ballpark more enjoyable, hence a few changes this season, beginning with the start time of games. Another change that fans asked for and are getting is at the concession stand. With a number of upgrades at the ballpark and a full off-season to plan promotions, Noble is expecting a much different experience for fans this year. The Rapids are hoping 2019 is a banner year for the team both on and off the field.
