[Waterloo, ON] – Wilfrid Laurier University and Bill Bowker
, Head Coach of the Women’s Golden Hawk Hockey program since 1999 recently agreed to part ways. During that time Mr. Bowker lead the Women’s Hockey Team to a very impressive 71-13-7 win-loss-tie record capturing gold, two silver and a bronze medal at the Ontario University Athletic (OUA) Championships as well as a national silver medal. He was also the recipient of Coach of the Year awards from both Laurier and the OUA.
Since 1999 Mr. Bowker worked hard at player identification and recruitment building the Golden Hawks to a perennial contender. His passion and knowledge of the game coupled with his commitment earned him the respect from his colleagues and players.
Wilfrid Laurier University’s student athlete development philosophy is strong with a focus on a learning experience that includes successful academic achievement, personal development and athletic performance.
Mr. Bowker is leaving a very successful Golden Hawk program and looks forward to further professional career pursuits.
A national search for Head Coach of the Women’s Hockey Team is currently underway.
