Greg Trebil, who led Holy Angels to two Class 2A state championships as boys’ hockey coach from 1996 to 2012, died Tuesday at age 70.
Trebil had lived with cancer for several years.
Under Trebil, Holy Angels became a powerhouse, going to five state tournaments from 1999 to 2005. The Stars, opting to move up from Class 1A, won the Class 2A championship twice, beating Hill-Murray 4-2 for the championship in 2002 and Moorhead 6-4 for the title in 2005.
Trebil, who attended Bloomington Kennedy and Gustavus Adolphus, was a highly successful youth coach for Bloomington Jefferson, going 538-73-30, when Holy Angels hired him in 1996.
