Joe Rowell only intended to take the athletic director’s job at Briarcrest on an interim basis.

Instead, he stayed on for eight years. And while his golf handicap has suffered as a result, the Saints have prospered.

Rowell has announced his retirement, saying it’s time to pass the baton to younger, fresher legs. A beloved figure on campus, he has overseen the growth of the school’s facilities and cultivated the success of the teams. The coaches who work with him say he’ll be missed, but his legacy will be impossible to ignore.

Rowell will undoubtedly be at Spring Fling this year and several local teams are in the process of trying to earn their spots too. Coaches and stat-keepers are encouraged to send in their scores, highlights and top performers after each game. Email jvarlas@dailymemphian.com or Tweet @johnvarlas.
