After nearly 40 years and over 850 wins Terry Lowe has stepped down as head coach of Greenwich High School according to GreenwichTime.com. Considered by many to be the finest boys’ program outside California, the Cardinals began play in 1975 and finished with a 4-6 record, the first and only time the squad completed a season with a losing record. Greenwich ended the 2013 season 26-1-1.
Former Iona player and Trinidad & Tobago native Chris Vidale will take over for the legendary Lowe beginning this fall.
Lowe was inducted in to the Connecticut High School Coaches Hall of Fame in 1993 and is currently listed as President of the highly successful Greenwich Water Polo. Unique among non-California programs, Lowe has sent dozens of his athletes to varsity collegiate programs since the 80s. His high school squads have gone undefeated four times.
One of the program’s more recognizable products is Lowe’s son, Zach, the well-known NBA writer for Grantland.com and Sports Illustrated. He discussed his experience with the team and its iconic coach on The Counter Attack podcast last September.
