The Coquitlam Adanacs have added another heavy-hitter to their senior coaching staff, this time announcing the appointment of former Adanacs world champion and Canadian lacrosse hall of famer Randy Delmonico to the Adanac brass.
Delmonico played all his Senior A career in Coquitlam and, in 1980, represented the city on the Canada West team which went on to win the Nations in 80 World Championship.
That victorious 1980 team was coached by the Adanacs' new head coach, Bob Salt, whom Delmonico will now work with.
From 1977 to 1980, Delmonico chalked up a career-spanning 82 goals and 79 assists while accruing a total of 166 penalty minutes.
After the 1980 season, Delmonico left Coquitlam to play lacrosse in Australia where he suffered a career-ending knee injury, so beginning a 31-years-and-counting career in coaching.
That second career has garnered Delmonico several awards for coaching including two BC Junior A Coach of the Year nods and, most recently, a second award for Top Coach in the Western Lacrosse Association.
When not on the field, Delmonico, a long-time Coquitlam resident, holds the position of captain with the Burnaby Fire Department.
