WORCESTER = The Assumption College Department of Athletics has announced that Devan Sheth, of Ashland, has earned a spot on the Assumption College Men’s Ice Hockey team.
Sheth, Class of 2022, is competing during the Greyhounds’ 2018-19 season.
“Coming off a strong season last year, our team is off to a fast start this season, and we are hungry to win the NE-10 Conference Championship,” said Michael Looney ’12, first-year head coach of the Men’s Ice Hockey team. “We have a strong group of student-athletes who consistently work hard on the ice, in the classroom, and in the community. Our team is a tight knit group with a great balance of veteran leadership and young talent that I hope continues to gel together as the season progresses.”
After the departure of Lance Brady in the offseason, Looney was named the new head coach of the College’s Ice Hockey team.
Looney previously served as the team’s associate head coach and was part of the staff who guided the program to its first championship victory in the 2016-17 season. Coach Looney will take over an Assumption team that is coming off a third place finish last season after falling to Saint Michael’s in the Northeast-10 Semifinals. The Hounds finished with an overall record of 15-10-2 and 8-6-1 in conference play last year, matching the program’s highest win total in 20 years. This season, the Hounds, picked fourth in the NE10 Preseason Coaches’ Poll, are eager to get back to the NE10 Championship game.
