Owatonna High School Names New Boys Hockey Coach
The Owatonna High School Activities Department announces the new boys hockey coach, pending school board approval, as David Fromm. He will take over after Josh Storm left to take the head coaching position at Lakeville South after ten seasons in town. Storm is a Lakeville native.
A news release from the OHS activities office says Fromm "comes to Owatonna with a wealth of hockey experience. Most recently serving as head coach for the Colorado Thunderbirds AAA program from 2011-2020. Coaching the Thunderbirds, Dave worked with groups from U11 through U18AAA, earning multiple state championships and national appearances."
Huskies Activities Director Marc Achterkirch states, "We are very excited to have coach Fromm take over as head boys hockey coach at Owatonna High School. Coach Fromm brings a tremendous amount of hockey knowledge and experience to the position. Dave will be a great mentor and leader, helping develop great student-athletes on and off the ice."
Fromm has a Bachelor of Arts degree from Minnesota State University, Mankato. He coached at Minneapolis South from 1996-2000 before going to Colorado. He also coached inline hockey internationally as the Team USA head coach from 1997-1999, capturing two World Championships and a Pan American title.
The Huskies had a successful 2020-21 season and advanced to the Section 1AA semifinals before falling to Lakeville North in a thriller. Scroll down past these Owatonna hockey photos to check out the schedule for the 2021-22 season.
