Tony Scheid, who joins the Raiders, and Caesare Engstrom, promoted to lead the Pioneers, each boast two state titles.

Two prominent metro area private schools, Cretin-Derham Hall and Hill-Murray, have hired successful veteran girls’ hockey coaches.

Tony Scheid

Tony Scheid brings two Class 2A state championships with him to Cretin-Derham Hall. Meanwhile, Caesare Engstrom served as an assistant coach at Hill-Murray when the Pioneers won a pair of Class 2A titles.

Scheid won his titles at Stillwater and looks forward to put Cretin-Derham Hall, a former Suburban East Conference rival, in contention for state supremacy. The Raiders last qualified for state in 2008.

Scheid arrives from a coaching stint at Woodbury. He has a career coaching record of 260-112-21.

Scheid replaces Brooke White-Lancette, who had coached the Raiders for four seasons.

Caesare Engstrom

Engstrom takes over at Hill-Murray having been an assistant coach for nine seasons and co-head coach for the past two seasons.

A former Bemidji State standout, Engstrom later played five seasons with the Minnesota Whitecaps. She has also been a trainer for Spice on Ice and OS Hockey Training and coached in the Midwest Elite High School Hockey League with the Advanced U-15 and U-16 programs.

She succeeds Bill Schafhauser, who endorsed Engstrom as he announced his departure after 13 seasons.
