Rarefied air…Gagne wins 700th as Scarborough downs Portland/Deering

PORTLAND—The names, faces and hairstyles have come and gone, but for more than four decades, Norm Gagne’s hockey teams have had one thing in common.

Triumph.

Saturday evening at Troubh Ice Arena, Gagne, whose coaching career predates that particular venue, as well as the defending Class A state champion Scarborough program he currently coaches, earned the 700th victory of his illustrious career and there’s no end in sight.

Longtime coach Gagne second to none in Maine

Pacing atop the 8-inch-wide bench behind his red-black-and-white-clad Scarborough Red Storm skaters, Norm Gagne's thick rasp echoed off the boards.

Dump it and change!"

"Skate!"

"Noooo!"

His voice trailed off, but it was still audible.

And unmistakable.

Seven titles deep, and Gagne’s still winning

Scarborough High School is home to many sports accolades – regional titles, state titles, etc. – each unique in its way. But even among all those hard-to-come-by achievements, one stands out, and it belongs to Norm Gagne.

Gagne is the boys hockey head coach, and he’s the second-winningest boys hockey head coach in America. That’s right: Across the entire country, only one other coach has piled up more victories than Gagne, according to the National Federation of State High School Association’s Record Book.

That other coach is Bill Belisle, who helmed the Mount St. Charles Academy outfit in Woonsocket, R.I., from 1976 to 2014, amassing 960 wins (specifically, Belisle’s overall record is 960-159-35). At the end of the 2015-16 season, Gagne stood at 704-296-34. Edward Burns, who coached in Arlington, Mass., from 1948-1997, holds the No. 3 spot, at 695-167-62.
