Boys’ Lacrosse Coach David Martin Steps Down
Posted May 23, 2012
Germantown Academy Head Coach of Boys’ Lacrosse David Martin 1760 has stepped down from the position after eight seasons.
“It is just my time to step aside,” said Martin, who will continue to coach coed golf in the fall and serve as Kershaw House Head and chair of the Upper School physical education department. “I have been coaching lacrosse for more than 35 years and I feel like this is the right time to step aside and let someone else take over. I have truly enjoyed the opportunity I was given to work with some great young adults in this program.”
“Dave Martin has been an outstanding coach and role model for our boys,” said Director of Athletics Jim Fenerty 1760. “He will be missed.”
In eight years, Martin recorded an 89-71 overall mark. He took the Patriots to the PSLA playoffs four straight-seasons and coached 10 All-Americans. Under Martin’s tutelage, numerous student-athletes were named All-Inter-Ac League.
GA finished the season 10-10 overall (4-6 Inter-Ac League), after falling to Lawrenceville in the quarterfinals of the 2012 Inter-Ac Invitational Tournament last week.
Director of Athletics Jim Fenerty 1760 has named assistant coach Brian Grady the Interim Head Coach. A search for a new head coach is underway.
