Williams has named Dana Borges as the men’s team’s new assistant coach.
Borges replaces Mike Monti, who moved up when Williams head coach Bill Kangas went on a sabbatical.
“I’m extremely thrilled to have the opportunity to be at Williams,” Borges told the Berkshire Eagle. “It’s Williams, right? It’s a place of high character, great tradition. It’s somewhere I’m really excited to be a part of.”
“He was the guy that stood out among the others,” added Monti. “We had a really nice pool, and we were very fortunate to have that.”
Borges played at Division II Stonehill from 2009 to 2013 and was a semifinalist for the Joe Concannon Award.
After college, he coached at Stonehill for two years before being named the volunteer assistant coach at Colgate late last summer.
“Coming from Colgate, I liked that kind of small-town, tight-knit community where everybody cares for each other, everybody’s pushing for each other,” Borges said in the Eagle. “I got a strong sense of that, just meeting with different individuals, how much everybody is working together for that common goal — help the kids, help each other to be better people and accomplish things every day.”
