Germantown Academy boys’ lacrosse coach David Martin has stepped down from the position after eight seasons, GA officials have announced.

“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.”

Said GA Director of Athletics Jim Fenerty, “Dave Martin has been an outstanding coach and role model for our boys. 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 2012 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.

Fenerty has named Assistant Coach Brian Grady the Interim Head Coach. A search for a new head coach is underway.
