The Governor Livingston-New Providence boys hockey team entered the 2022-23 season with a new coach, but the expectations — and results — are no different.
After winning the Kelly Cup in 2020-21 season and the Public C championship last season, the team was 10-3-2 as of Thursday.
“I think the fact of winning last year, everybody wants to repeat, right?” said first-year head coach Greg Jensen. “Nobody’s going to be like, ‘OK, we already won a state championship.’ Everybody wants that next one, so one of the things that we talked about was still being hungry for that next thing, that next success, the next win, never being complacent.”
Jensen played college hockey at Seton Hall and Liberty University before quickly moving on to a coaching career in juniors, college (Monmouth University and Ramapo College), and high school (Livingston High School and Sparta High School). He hadn’t coached the past two seasons but was itching to get back on the ice and was excited to see the Governor Livingston-New Providence job opportunity.
