Willmar notebook: Second-generation ice manager
The new manager at the Civic Center’s twin arenas is a former three-sport athlete at The Breck School in Golden Valley. Troy Ciernia’s dad, Mark, worked at the Mustangs’ arena. He still works there, as assistant manager.
“I think he started there while he was still in school,” Troy said the other day. “He’s worked there about 40 years. I guess that’s where I got the bug.”
