Kathy and Phil O’Donoghue
2011 Scott R.H. Smith Award for Outstanding contributions to the Ice Hockey Program.
The O’Donoghues have been long time supporters of the Prep Hockey Program and describe the program as “special” and “a close knit family”. They felt there are far worthier volunteers that deserve this award. Mr. O’Donoghue dedicated this award to all the Prep Hockey Parents that are involved in the program. Being a “hockey parent” usually involves early practices, waiting/sitting in cold ice rinks (sometimes outside), long drives to away games, expensive equipment that is frequently outgrown, and helping with scoresheets, scoreboards, penalty box, and fund raising.
They have two sons, Phillip and John, that attended and played hockey for Georgetown Prep. Phillip played from 1998 to 2002 and played for Kevin Charles and Brian Maloney. John played from 2003 through 2007 and played for Coach Maloney. The O’Donoghues worked with Mr. Peter Black (father), Bob Kemp, John Hyland, Mr. Plamondon (Senior) and Scott Smith “doing whatever was required at the moment”. The O’Donoghues are also friends of the Smith family and have watched both Matt and Kenny grow up. The O’Donoghues still annually support the hockey program and as usual donated the wine for this evening’s dinner.

2011 Alumni Game Roster
2011 Alumni Game – Thanks to the Organizers and Participants
Sean McDonald (Michael ’12), has organized this game for the past 3 years. Imagine the challenge of reaching out to 20 years of Prep Alumni to get them to come back to the game, getting the ice, refs, dinner, jerseys, rosters, awards, etc., etc. It is a huge undertaking. Please show your appreciation to Sean and his family if you get a chance.
Babs Leese took the great on-ice pictures. Dave Chadwick did the professional-grade play by play.
