Zachary Frament ’16 Named Interim Girls Varsity Hockey Head Coach
Tilton School Director of Athletics Tara Brisson announced today that Zachary Frament ’16 has been named the Interim Head Coach of the girls varsity hockey team. Starring in hockey, lacrosse, and soccer during his time on the Hill, Frament went on to play hockey at Stonehill College before beginning his career as an educator and coach.
“We’re so excited that Zach will be stepping into this role,” says Brisson. “As an alum, he knows firsthand the value of the Tilton experience in developing student-athletes and he takes a tremendous amount of pride in continuing that tradition. His goal is not only to establish our girls hockey program as one of the best in New England but also to help prepare each and every player for the challenges and opportunities of life after Tilton.”
During his three years at Tilton, Frament captained both the hockey and lacrosse programs and was named a MacMorran Scholar for his work in the classroom and around campus. While at Stonehill, he helped lead the Skyhawks to their third-ever Northeast-10 conference championship in the 2019-20 season and led the team in plus/minus during his junior and senior seasons.
“I am thrilled to expand my role as a teacher, mentor, and coach at Tilton,” says Frament, who joined his alma mater as a science faculty member this fall. “This is not only an opportunity to coach a competitive group of girls, but also equip them with the essential skills that I was fortunate enough to learn while attending Tilton. This is an exciting team to be a part of and I look forward to seeing them lead the charge in enhancing Tilton’s culture and atmosphere while developing as players, teammates, and students.”
Prior to joining the faculty at Tilton, where he’s currently teaching biology and engineering, Frament taught at the middle school level for two years. During that time, he coached both girls and boys including varsity softball at the NHIAA Division I level, preseason hockey camps for middle schoolers, and hockey skills camps for athletes between the ages of 10-17.
