The 1994 Guilford High School Hockey team coached by Bill Gerosa

Long before he brought the 2012 Connecticut D1 hockey state championship to Notre Dame-West Haven, Coach Bill Gerosa actually earned his first state championship as a head coach in D2.

In 1994, he led Guilford High School to a 19-1-3 record and D2 state championship – the first in school history.  After a dominant regular season, the Indians motored through the playoffs, capping their season with a  convincing 8-1 victory over Tri-town in the state finals.

Gerosa compiled a 102-76-5 in nine years at Guilford, before moving on to become the head coach at Notre Dame-West Haven in 1998.
