Coach Don Casey was honored at the Water Polo Area Dedication on Tuesday, April 3rd, for his years of coaching and teaching at MICDS. Don began working at Country Day School in 1976 and has been a pillar of the CDS and MICDS community ever since. Many past and present pupils of his gathered at the Steward Family Aquatic Center to join in the celebration, which preceded a water polo game vs. Chaminade.
“He continues to shape, mold and influence the lives of the people he teaches and coaches in deeply important ways,” said Kent Rapp ’76. “On a personal note, water polo was my great passion growing up and throughout college – and it’s all because of Don Casey.”
Coach Casey shared his gratitude to the sizable crowd that had gathered.
“The one constant – in both my experiences of teaching and coaching – has been the joy and satisfaction I’ve experienced seeing young people learn, enjoy what they’re doing, and improve over the years,” said Coach Casey.
Coach Casey went on that evening to add another notch to his winning record in a game versus Chaminade.
