Volunteer Coach

Mark Greenhalgh has served as the volunteer assistant coach for the UW women's hockey program since the 2007-08 season.

While at Wisconsin, Greenhalgh has worked with two of the best goaltenders in NCAA history in Jessie Vetter and Alex Rigsby, as the duo rank third and fourth in career wins in NCAA history. In 2009, Vetter became only the second goaltender in NCAA history to be awarded the Patty Kazmaier Award. The duo of Vetter and Rigsby also rank first and second in almost every single goaltending category at Wisconsin.

Greenhalgh also has helped in the development of Ann-Renee Desbiens, the 2013-14 WCHA Goaltending Champion. 

He has been involved with coaching goaltenders of all ages for 25 years, producing three all-state goalies while serving as an assistant coach at Madison Memorial. Prior to that, Greenhalgh assisted at UW-Whitewater, where the team made five appearances at the National Collegiate Club Tournament during his seven-year tenure.

During the 1990's, Greenhalgh served as goalie coach for Team Wisconsin. He has also worked numerous hockey schools throughout the Midwest over the last two decades.

Greenhalgh played his youth hockey in Janesville, Wis., where he was inducted into the Janesville Sports Hall of Fame in 2005. A walk-on with the Wisconsin men's hockey team in the mid 1970's, Greenhalgh followed his UW career with a brief stint with the Madison Blues in the Continental Hockey League.

Greenhalgh earned his Bachelor of Science in agricultural business and industry in 1987 from the University of Wisconsin. He also received a Master of Science in 1997 from UW-Whitewater in occupational safety.

Mark and his wife Amy reside in Madison with their three daughters: Drew, Ella and Maria. His family also hosts exchange students.
