Woonsocket, R.I. (WPRI) - Father and son Bill and Dave Belisle have coached together at Mt. Saint Charles for 40 years. That era comes to an end on Friday night when the Mounties will host Bishop Hendricken in their final home game of the season.
The last name Belisle is associated with 32 state championships, 26 of them coming in a row, plus 20 players drafted to the National Hockey League. Bill Belisle is a member of the National Hockey Hall of Fame with over 1,000 career wins, the most of any high school coach.
Dave Belisle will remain a member of the Mount hockey program, serving as an advisor and consultant. At the age of 89, Bill will retire and focus on spending more time with his wife.
