Boys hockey: Persaud steps down as United's coach

By

After three seasons as Manitowoc United Head Hockey Coach, Mark Persaud decided to step down as of April 30.

A search for a replacement for Persaud will begin later this spring.

Next season, United will continue to compete as a WIAA cooperative team, with athletes from Manitowoc Lincoln, Roncalli, Manitowoc Lutheran, Denmark, Valders, Mishicot and Two Rivers.

For at least the 2014-15 season, United will compete exclusively at the junior varsity level in the Fox River Classic Conference.

“We appreciate and respect the time and effort Mark has given to hockey in Manitowoc and the surrounding communities,” said Manitowoc Lincoln athletic director John Johnson via a press release. “Mark has a true love and passion for kids and for the sport of hockey, but we respect his decision to step away.”

Manitowoc United just completed its fifth season competing at the WIAA level.
