The search is on for the next head coach of the Trinity Western Spartans hockey team as the university had opted not to renew the expiring contract of Dwayne Lowdermilk.
“Trinity Western owes a big thanks to Dwayne the pioneer,” said TWU director of athletics Murray Hall, in a press release on March 8.
“He came in and helped us cut our teeth in the burgeoning BCIHL.
“Under is leadership, the TWU Titans made a successful transition to the TWU Spartans.
“We are grateful for the time and effort Dwayne has put into TWU hockey and we wish him the best in his future endeavours.”
Lowdermilk was behind the bench for the past three seasons, including this past year when the team went 6-14-0-2 and missed the post-season.
“I’ve had a great time and had great kids to work with,” Lowdermilk said.
That first year, the team was called the Titans, but they adopted the Spartans moniker when they transitioned from a club program at Trinity Western to a varsity program.
They have been part of the BCIHL since 2006.
