PMHS ice hockey coach Ed Witz has retired two days after winning the 2022 New York State Division II Championship.

Witz has been the headman with the Pelicans since the 1984-1985 season. In that span, he wracked up 513 wins, 12 section championships, eight regional titles and two state trophies.

With a 37-year career coming to an end, Witz will go down in school history as one of the greatest coaches to lead a PMHS team.
