Colgate has announced the hiring of Greg Fargo as the new head coach of its women’s team.
Fargo spent the last four seasons coaching the Elmira women’s squad, where he was the 2009 ECAC West co-coach of the year and a two-time nominee for top AHCA coaching honors. He was also a goalie at Elmira from 2002-06.
“We’re excited to have Greg Fargo coming to Colgate to be in charge of our women’s ice hockey program,” said Colgate director of athletics David Roach in a statement. “He brings great experience in recruiting at the Division I level from his time at Canisius as an assistant and his head coaching experience at Elmira. I see him as a great fit at Colgate and look forward to working with him in the future of women’s ice hockey.”
Fargo led Elmira to consecutive ECAC West titles in 2009 and 2010, along with an NCAA tournament second-place finish in 2009 and a third-place finish in 2010.
As a player, Fargo still holds the all-time career saves and minutes played record at Elmira, recording a combined 2,565 saves in 5,123 minutes over the course of his four seasons. His .926 save percentage in 2005-06 is still the all-time best at Elmira, while his goals-against average that same season ranks him second in the program’s 34-year history.
