HSHS is proud to welcome back Spartan Legend, Joe Welsh, to once again lead our Girls Crew program as Head Coach. A 1977 graduate of Holy Spirit, Joe was a member of our esteemed 1976 Varsity 8 boat that won the Henley Royal Regatta in England. After rowing at Temple University, Coach Welsh returned to Spirit and went on to coach for 33 years before stepping away to watch his daughter row in college in 2018. As a coach, Joe has led the Spartans to numerous Stotesbury and National championships, and a Henley Women’s Regatta Championship in 2003. We are extremely excited to welcome back Coach Joe Welsh! Go Spirit Go!
