Academy of Holy Angels (AHA) is pleased to announce that Ryan LaMere, AHA class of 1999, has been named head coach of the girls' hockey team.
Coach LaMere is an AHA alum who had a well-established career as a student-athlete. He was a two-year captain who lead the Stars to the State Class AA Tournament his senior year. He received all-conference, all-state and all-state tournament team honors during his career at AHA.
Following high school, LaMere pursued his bachelor’s degree in economics and business at St. Cloud State University on a Division 1 hockey scholarship. He was on the All-Academic Team (2004), won the William Radovich Award, and was captain his senior year. He went on to earn his master’s degree in economics/public-non profit institutions.

“In my conversations with Coach LaMere over the last month, it is apparent that he will be a perfect fit for the future of the program both in his philosophy for coaching as well as forming young people in the AHA Way. His passion and positive energy will greatly benefit our student-athletes and the larger school community," said AHA Athletic Director Michael Kautzman.
