Marist names new hockey coach
Chuck Peters, a 1973 Marist graduate, has been named the school's new varsity hockey coach.
Peters, who retired last December from his deputy chief position after 36 years with the Chicago Fire Department, has been associated with RedHawks hockey since 2008. He previously held posts with Sandburg, Andrew and Mt. Carmel high schools, as well as the St. Jude Hockey Club.
His first season in charge will be the 40th year of Marist's hockey program, and Peters is eager to begin its latest chapter. In his initial meeting with team members, he spoke to RedHawks players about the importance of a strong commitment, both on and off the ice.
An event that will allow parents and players to learn more about what's in store from Peters and his still-to-be-chosen assistants is being planned.
