Attleboro High announced Mark Homer as its new hockey coach on Monday. Homer, who also serves as the school’s softball coach, takes over for Mike Cripps who stepped down following the conclusion of the 2015-2016 season.

“Coach Homer will be a valuable asset to our high school and development in our ice hockey program,” said Attleboro athletic director Mark Houle. “He has a vision and plan that will have a positive impact on ice hockey program which will develop current and younger players and improve participation at the high school level.

“I look forward to working with Coach Homer as he strides for these goals.”

Homer will oversee the Attleboro bench after spending the past three seasons as the head coach of Oliver Ames’ hockey team. In his three years with OA, Homer helped guide the Tigers to a 31-28-6 record and three straight postseason appearances.

Prior to taking over at Oliver Ames, Homer was the coach at King Philip. He has also been the softball coach at Attleboro High for the past two seasons and is a teacher at the school.

Attleboro High principal Bill Runey said, “Coach Homer understands the vision for our ‘Blue Pride’ community. He has high expectations for players both on and off the ice as we have high standards for academics and conduct in the community.”

 

Runey added, “With the continued support of our families and the opportunity to play at the New England Sports Village, I see a bright future for AHS Hockey.”
