St. Norbert hires Martalock as assistant women’s coach

Kelsea Martalock is moving from Wisconsin-Stevens Point to be an assistant coach for the St. Norbert women’s team.

Martalock, who split four collegiate playing seasons between Bethel and Stevens Point, spent the last three seasons with the Pointers.

Her assistant coaching duties included coordinating strength and conditioning.

As part of an internship in the summer of 2012, Martalock organized and conducted off-ice training at Wisconsin. She is a certified strength and conditioning specialist and is researching for a manuscript on training, anaerobic power and performance enhancement specific to women’s hockey.

“Kelsea’s coaching experience and training elite student-athletes will be a great addition to our program,” St. Norbert coach Rob Morgan said in a release. “We are really excited for Kelsea to be joining our staff. Our student-athletes are going to benefit from her passion, work ethic, knowledge and leadership.”

Martalock replaces Amanda Trunzo.
