Enders named assistant for Marquette

The Marquette Rangers have named Randy Enders an assistant coach for the upcoming season.

Enders enjoyed a stellar junior and NCAA playing career. Enders was a defenseman with the Sioux City Musketeers for three seasons and his NCAA career included one season for the University of Alaska-Anchorage and three seasons with the University of Wisconsin-Stevens Point. As team captain his senior year, Enders was named All-NCHA-Honorable Mention and was selected All-WICA-First Team. His team also voted him "Classiest Player," "Mr. Consistent" and "Hardest Worker." Stevens Point team won the NCHA regular season league championship Enders' sophomore year.

Enders began his coaching career as an instructor at the Musketeers Hockey School in Sioux City and served as head instructor at the Winners Edge Development camp in Spooner, Wisc.

In 2003, Enders accepted a teaching position with the Sheboygan (Wisconsin) School District and became the Red Raiders assistant coach in 2004 where he was responsible for defenseman skill development, designing and implementing practice programs and developing game strategies.

"I had the privilege of coaching Randy when he was a player (in Sioux City)," Rangers' head coach Leigh Mendelson said. "His work ethic, attention to detail along with practice and game preparation, is second to none. Randy’s accomplishments as a player and a coach are solid, but his greatest asset is his ability to teach our players how to best prepare to get the most out of their talent. The combination of being a teacher and hockey player is a unique combination and we expect him to help our players excel both on and off the ice."
