He led the GHS Athletic Department since 2005 supporting student-athletes as they competed at a high level and achieved countless successes with Divisional, Conference (FCIAC) and State Championships.

GHS was named the FCIAC top athletic programs in 2012, 2014 and 2018, and the State of Connecticut’s top athletic program twice by leading national media outlets under his supervision

He was inducted into the FCIAC Hall of Fame in June 2015 and has been a long-time member of the FCIAC Executive Board and Board of Directors.

Lindine’s retirement was announced on Dec 2 by school superintendent Dr. Toni Jones, who said Lindine would continue to assist the athletic department with the transition to a new director.

“Gus has shown an unwavering commitment to our student-athletes throughout the years,” Superintendent of Schools Dr. Toni Jones said. “Our staff has not seen anyone more dedicated. Our students have not been led by a better leader. Our community will not have a better friend.”

Before coming to Greenwich, he was the Athletic Director at Fairfield High School for 11 years.

A search for Mr. Lindine’s replacement is under way.
