Greenwich Old Timers Athletic Association Coach’s Lifetime Achievement Award

The Greenwich Old Timers Athletic Association will present Terry Lowe with its Coach’s Lifetime Achievement Award at its eighth annual luncheon on June 2 at Greenwich Country Club. Lowe has served the Greenwich Public Schools with distinction for many years as a mathematics teacher and as coach of the Greenwich High School boys swimming and boys water polo teams. Over the last 50 years, Lowe’s teams have set the standard of excellence that all other teams in the state try to emulate. The amount of FCIAC, Class LL and State Open swimming championships the Cardinals have won under his guidance is unparalleled.

He also introduced water polo to GHS in 1975 and turned the team into an east coast powerhouse. In 39 seasons with the Cardinals’ water polo team, Lowe posted a career record of 844-169-12. His water polo teams won five New England Championships and captured 18 Eastern/Mid-Atlantic titles in the high school division.

Lowe has recently retired as a teacher and no longer coaches water polo, but he continues to coach Greenwich’s boys swim team. This past season, his relatively young and inexperienced team swept the FCIAC, CIAC LL and State Open championships in dramatic fashion.

The Greenwich Old Timers Athletic Association, with its mission of supporting youth sports in our community, established the Coach’s Lifetime Achievement Award to annually recognize an individual or individuals who best exemplified the spirit of excellence and commitment to the young athletes of our community over an extended period of time. Along with the award, each year the Old Timers make a $1,000 donation to a youth sports program in the community in the recipient’s name. John Kavanaugh, Harold Catanzaro, Larry Jones, Bruce Fuller, Tom Smith, Peter Gasparino, Joe Vancho and Garland Allen are the previous recipients of the Coach’s Lifetime Achievement Award.
