Mens hockey is having a phenomenal season, currently undefeated and ranked #3 in the nation. I find this surprising. Traditionally, mens hockey has been one of the weakest teams at Williams. Indeed, I can’t think of a team with a worse winning percentage, both historically and over the last decade, ignoring sports like skiing and squash that play Div 1 teams. (Contrary opinions welcome!)
Bill Kangas has coached the team, to mixed reviews, for more than 20 years.
So, what explains hockey’s recent success? Better recruiting? Better coaching? More help from admissions?
Do you expect hockey over the next decade to be as successful as some of the other high profile mens sports (soccer, football, basketball) have been over the last decade?
Informed commentary welcome.
