Paul Nemetz-Carlson has been named as the new head women’s coach at Elmira. He was also appointed the women’s golf coach.
Last season, Nemetz-Carlson was an assistant coach at Division I Yale, and held the same position at Quinnipiac two years ago. Prior to his arrival at the collegiate level, Nemetz-Carlson was the women’s head varsity coach at Hebron Academy in Maine for three years, compiling a record of 49-8-3 including a Division III NEPSGHIA Championship in 2000.
“I’m very excited about the opportunity to take over such a successful program,” Nemetz-Carlson said. “I am indebted to those whose efforts have built such a solid foundation and I look forward to the challenges and learning experiences ahead as Elmira continues to be a leader in Division III women’s ice hockey.”
Nemetz-Carlson succeeds Jamie Wood, who left Elmira for a position in Canada this spring. Wood directed the Soaring Eagles to two consecutive NCAA Division III championships in the program’s first two seasons.
Elmira is currently on a 51-game unbeaten streak (48-0-3) against Division III opponents dating back almost two years.
