WATERLOO – After 10 years of involvement with Golden Hawk volleyball, head coach of the women’s program Dave McIntyre
has chosen to step down at the end of the this season.
This weekend will mark Dave’s final regular season home games.
McIntyre spent three seasons as an assistant coach to former coach Russ Woloshyn before taking the helm of the program in the 2000-2001 season.
In that time he has mentored a total of nine athletes to earn 25 all-star and all-Canadian awards.
"Laurier women’s volleyball has a solid foundation for the future thanks to Dave’s drive, determination and caring for his players," stated Director of Athletics and Recreation PETER BAXTER
. "He has built a program that has achieved provincial and national recognition, for that we are truly thankful of Dave’s contribution to Wilfrid Laurier Athletics."
McIntyre himself earned recognition across the province and then the country being named the OUA West Coach of the Year and then CIS Coach of the Year after the 2001/2002 season where he led his team to an 18-0 regular season.
McIntyre will be working more in his real-estate career while also spending time with his wife Stephanie and children William and Joseph.
The team is presently 8-8 on the season and tied with Guelph with a total of 16 points in the OUA west. They have three games to go in the regular season – Friday against Windsor, Saturday against Western and February 9th against the Waterloo Warriors.
An announcement will be made in the coming weeks as to his successor.
