The Wallaceburg Lakers have hired a new coach and general manager.

Marc Swayze, 38, will assume both duties with the team. He says getting the organization turned around is going to be a process.

“They won six games last year, so we need to improve on that,” says Swayze. “Our goal is going to be to make the playoffs. I’m not going to say that we’re going to be first overall – that’s a little unrealistic, but making the playoffs isn’t.”

Swayze has head coaching and GM experience at both the Jr. B and Jr. C levels. Swayze held both roles in Dresden and in Chatham at times.
