Tom Geilfuss ’70 has recently retired from his role as sports information coordinator and assistant coach for the girls’ hockey program. Geilfuss started at USM in 1993 as a Middle School social studies teacher and remained in that role before leaving the classroom in 2008. After working as an assistant in the Middle School library for a year, he took on the newly created part-time position of sports information coordinator in 2009, crafting game recaps for all varsity sports for sharing on the school’s website, through email distribution groups to current families and the alumni community, and with the local media for wider coverage of USM’s athletic programs. Over the years he also helped coach a number of other teams including field hockey.
For more than a decade, Geilfuss provided an important service to our Wildcats fans in his sports information role, bringing a unique writing style to our sports coverage that will be hard, if not impossible, to duplicate. We wish him the best in his retirement and thank him for his many contributions to our school.
USM has been working to continue with game recaps for the rest of this school year while also working on a long-term plan for the role moving forward. Please visit the athletics website at www.usmathletics.org
