People in support of rehiring Coach Chris Tarello

We, the undersigned, respectfully urge Dr. Ritchie and Ms. O\'Neill to reconsider the decision not to offer Chris Tarello a coaching contract for the 2008-2009 academic year. We believe this decision is ill-advised, and does not in any way reflect the sentiments of the vast majority of the Lincoln-Sudbury Regional High School Cross-Country and Track and Field community. Chris has our full confidence and support as a cross country and track coach. Chris Tarello is a dedicated, serious coach whose expertise and enthusiasm are significant assets to the Lincoln-Sudbury Cross-Country and Track and Field Programs. Please reconsider and rehire Coach Chris Tarello.

In a short amount of time Chris made the LS program a powerhouse in cross country. While there were outstanding athletes up front, the most impressive natire of his teams were the depth. It was obvious to all that viewed this happening virtually overnight that Coach Tarello's dedication, knowledge and caring brought out the best in his athletes. Hopefully thoughtful minds will realize that bringing him back would be in the best interests of the student athletes. if not his loss will be felt not only by the LS community but the whole massaxchusetts community as well if he does not end up coaching in the area. He would be an asset to any program. Michael Glennon Brookline XC and T&F

He is passionate about the sport and the team. He pushes the kids to their potential in his caring and supportive way. He shows each student athelete how to train and supports them in each race. This kind of committment to the XC and track team members has been appreciated by my son and our family. XC and track will not be the same without Coach Tarello.
