GA swimming coach Dick Shoulberg takes leave of absence



Germantown Academy’s revered swimming coach, Dick Shoulberg, is on leave because of “a personnel issue,” a school administrator said Monday.

In an e-mail to parents last month, the school announced that assistant coach Claire Crippen would serve as acting director and acting head coach of the girls’ team in Shoulberg’s absence. Assistant coach Chris Lear will be acting head coach of the boys’ team, athletic director Jim Fenerty said.

Head of School Jim Connor said he could not comment on Shoulberg’s leave but said he hoped it would be resolved “very soon.”
