John Glenn chemistry teacher Kevin Harrington, who has served as the Glenn varsity girls volleyball coach for the past 20 years, was recently announced as an inductee into the Suffolk Sports Hall of Fame’s Class of 2022. The induction ceremony will be held on May 18 at East Wind Long Island in Shoreham.
“Since Kevin was appointed as head coach, our volleyball program has reached unprecedented heights,” Athletic Director Dave Shanahan said.
Boasting an overall record of 504-104, Harrington has guided the team to six New York State volleyball championships, 15 Long Island championships, 18 county championships (including 16 consecutive titles from spring 2001 through fall 2015) and 22 league championships. Every team since 1992 has been recognized as a New York State Scholar-Athlete team.
“It's a great honor and it makes me remember the hundreds of players that I got to coach here in Elwood over the past 35 years,” Harrington said. “I couldn't have done it without having great kids, and we’ve had a lot of great student-athletes here over the years.”
