Gary Donnell - Oakmont Faculty and Coach (1987-2012)
Coach Gary Donnell (1987-2012) is remembered best for his years as the head basketball coach (1987-2001). Making the playoffs almost every season, his teams often performed well there. His 1999 team won the SFL championship and then went on to lose the SJS finals on a last-second shot. The 2000 team also made it to the section finals before losing. The 1994 team was the best in OHS history. They won the CVC (3 -way tie with Jesuit and Foothill), then the D-2 section championship. Next was the NorCal tourney, which they also won. They finished 2nd in the state finals. The 3 CVC teams all made the finals (the only time 3 teams from the same league ever did such). Coach Donnell also coached boys golf for 14 years. The boys team won the CAL in 1998. He coached girls golf for 8 years and the girls won championships in the CVC (2009) and SFL (2010).
