Meet the Coaches

CoachCavanaugh2012Thomas Cavanaugh

After a playing at Xaverian and Worcester Academy, Coach Cavanaugh went on to play at the University of New Hampshire, starting for 2 ½ years and serving as co-captain his senior year. After graduating from UNH, Coach played a year in Canada at Acadia University. At each stop he learned from some of the best coaches in New England. What he learned from them has been instrumental in his coaching and has been augmented with 30 years at camps and clinics listening to some of the best basketball minds around.

After leaving Acadia, Coach Cavanaugh’s teaching career began in St. Angela’s in Mattapan, moved on to St. Columbkille’s in Brighton, Don Bosco in Boston and now Coach is in his 13th year at Blue Hills Regional. Having coached at all levels in the game from CYO to High School with both girls and boys, Coach Cavanaugh is excited to be working with the young ladies from Mt. Alvernia. Coach Cavanaugh has 26 years experience as Dean of Students between his time at Blue Hills Regional and Don Bosco. Those 26 years coupled with 5 years in the classroom have given him a wealth of experience working with student athletes. Coach Cavanaugh has two goals for his athletes that they will grow to love the game as much as he does and that they will develop lifelong relationships with the people they meet through their participation in the greatest game ever invented.

CoachStCyr2012Thomas St. Cyr

A lifelong athlete, Coach St. Cyr played high school football, baseball & basketball and ran cross country and track in college. Coach has completed two Boston marathons and for the past few summers has participated in forty and fifty mile bike rides. A dedication to athleticism and healthy living is an essential part of the message that Coach hopes to impart to his team.

After graduating from college, Coach St. Cyr taught at Our Lady of the Presentation grammar school in Brighton and coached the boys & girls basketball teams for five years at two different local community colleges.

After the birth of his two sons, he left the teaching and coaching profession and entered into the field of telecommunications as a sales rep and sales manager. Today he has his own telecommunications company. Throughout these years of being in the telecommunications industry, he has been running basketball clinics and coaching all levels of travel & AAU basketball. Several of his players have had very successful high school careers & many have gone on to compete at the college level.

Coach is a student of the game and some would say he is a basketball junkie. As his sons went off to college, one of his goals was to get involved with coaching at the high school level.

“I appreciate the opportunity to be part of the Mount Alvernia program. My job as the junior varsity coach is to get the girls, when it is their time, ready to play at the varsity level. Each practice will involve teaching the team the fundamentals of basketball, running well thought out drills, and preparing them for game situations. Lastly, I want the overall basketball experience to be fun. I look forward to having a great season.”
