Former Vikings men’s basketball player, Remy Simpson, becomes women’s team coach – October 5, 2011


Kingston ON – St. Lawrence College is pleased to announce the hiring of Remy Simpson as the new head coach for the Vikings women’s basketball team.


Simpson is a familiar face at St. Lawrence College, as he was a member of the Vikings men’s basketball team from 2004 to 2006 and 2008 to 2010.



“I’m excited to take on the challenge of creating a winning program,” Simpson.



“Remy was a leader when he represented the Vikings on the court and is very much a student of the game,” said St. Lawrence College Athletic Director Brad Greenwood. “I expect that Remy will bring his drive, determination and enthusiasm for the game to his new role as women’s basketball coach. We are delighted that Remy will continue to be a part of SLC Athletics.”


Simpson takes over head coaching duties from Andrea Blackwell, who had to leave the team to attend a personal commitment.



“We appreciate Andrea’s time and commitment to our program, wish her all the best, and hope to see her back with the Vikings in the near future,” added Greenwood.



The St. Lawrence Vikings women’s basketball team opens its Ontario Colleges Athletic Association season on Friday, Nov. 4 at 6 p.m. when it hosts George Brown.
