Eldridge native Tombergs named president of Quad-City Storm

By Bobby Metcalf - Quad-City Times


Despite the challenges, an opportunity to run her hometown hockey team was too good for Gwen Tombergs to pass up.

Tombergs was introduced Thursday as the president of Quad-City Storm, the new hockey franchise that will debut in the Southern Professional Hockey League in October.

"That's the biggest feather in my hat," the Eldridge native said. "I can't even tell you how proud I am that I had the skill set that fit, but to say I can make a difference in my own hometown with a product that's going to be embraced and has a lot of support already, it's pretty huge in my book."

Tombergs is the first female president in the 23-year history of Quad-City hockey as well as in the 14-year history of the SPHL.

"She's involved in the community. She's qualified to be president and it has nothing to do with whether she's male or female. She's the best candidate for the job, period," SPHL commissioner Jim Combs said. "It's fantastic, I think more people should do it. We've had female officials, we had a female goalie playing for us, looking forward to the day where it's not a thing."
