Fenwick Boys Hockey Club Appoints New Varsity Head Coach

March 10, 2020

Alumnus Nick Chiappetta '10 is the new leader of the Friars boys' hockey team.


Fenwick alumnus Nick Chiappetta '10, a six-year veteran of the Friars' hockey coaching staff, is our new head coach! Upon graduating from Boston College in 2014, Chiappetta reunited with Fenwick as an assistant coach of the Boys’ JV2 team in the 2014-15 season, elevating to JV1 assistant from 2015-18, and ultimately served as the Head Coach of JV1 for the 2018-19 season. He most recently served as the assistant coach of the boys’ varsity team. Nick brings with him over 300 games coached at the high-school level, some of which highlighted with Kennedy Cup Finals appearances and a State Runner-Up finish at the JV level his second season coaching with the program.

Nick was a four-year goaltender during his years at Fenwick, the last three of which were on varsity. Having made numerous Kennedy Cup Finals appearances and top 10 finishes in state himself, he knows what it takes, from both sides of the bench, to win at the high school level. 

“I could not be more thrilled for the opportunity to bring a competitive, winning culture back to Fenwick High School," Coach Chiappetta says. "We will bring Fenwick Hockey back to its proper place of being a top-tier high school program in Illinois, and I so greatly look forward to bringing my experiences as both a player and coach for Fenwick to the players of this program for years to come. FRIAR UP!” 

We want to thank Coach Monte for his time at Fenwick and wish him continued success at the Chicago Blues Hockey Club and in his future endeavors.
