Christening of the R. O’Hern

special event of the GA Crew Team

What a great day to be a Patriot! The Germantown Academy crew program christened the “R. O’Hern,” a boat gifted by several families and named in honor of longtime Upper School Science Teacher and Crew Coach Dick O’Hern.

Coach O’Hern has been involved in GA Crew since the beginning when the team only had two rowers (this year, more than 40 kids are involved in the program)! He worked tirelessly behind the scenes as a faculty advisor and has served as a novice coach for the last few seasons.

We thank the three families who donated a new Vespoli quad to the rowing program for girls use.

Congratulations Coach O’Hern! #PatriotPride
