Killingly’s Marcoux named new athletic director at East Lyme
Kevin Marcoux, who has spent the past five seasons leading the athletic department at Killingly High School, was appointed to the same position at East Lyme High School on Monday night.
The East Lyme Board of Education made the announcement during its Monday night meeting.
Marcoux will replace Steve Hargis, who is stepping down as athletic director at the end of the school year. Marcoux will begin his new job on July 1.
“I am incredibly proud of the work we have done and the accomplishments and success that our teams have displayed both on their fields/courts and in the community during my time as athletic director,” Marcoux said in a release. “The decision to leave Killingly was very difficult, one that I did not reach without long conversations with family and friends.
“In the end, my philosophies and priorities no longer aligned with the leadership of the district and it became clear that a professional change was needed. I am very excited to bring my energy and ideas to East Lyme and hit the ground running on my July 1 start date.”
Marcoux also served as Killingly’s golf coach and guided the program to a 209-24-3 record over 12 seasons with 10 straight ECC divisional titles, eight ECC Open titles and a pair of state championships. He also played a major role in upgrading Killingly’s outdoor facility into one of the top field turf complex’s in the conference.
“I wish nothing but success for the coaches and student-athletes at Killingly moving forward,” he added. “I am extremely excited about the position at East Lyme. East Lyme has a long history of academic and athletic excellence. The community is supportive of their youth and demands the very best. It will be my top priority to make the athletic experience the very best that it can be, a program that the entire community can get behind with pride.”
