Rensselaer adds ex-Holy Cross women’s assistant Alfama to Engineers’ staff

Rensselaer announced Thursday the hiring of former Holy Cross assistant women’s coach Derek Alfama as a new assistant women’s coach with the Engineers.

“Derek is a tireless worker and will bring great deal of experience and energy to our program,” said PRI head coach John Burke in a statement. “He has been both successful on the ice and as a recruiter. We are very fortunate to have Derek be part of the RPI family.”

Alfama was an assistant with Holy Cross from 2011-13 and an assistant at Norwich from 2008-11.

A 1996 graduate of Norwich, Alfama was a four-year member of the Cadets’ men’s team, serving as team captain during his senior season.
