Title: Class of 1992

Terrance O'Hara, your accomplishments on the baseball diamond were truly remarkable as you played in every inning of every game for four straight years as a centerfielder. An "ironman" performance to say the least.

You broke onto the college scene by hitting a lofty .393 as a freshman and closed out your career as a senior with a .381 performance. You career batting averaged was an outstanding .354. You were well known for your base stealing ability. Your leadership qualities were recognized as you were elected captain of the 1961 team:

You and your teammates were instrumental in starting a winning baseball tradition at Worcester State which lasted for 10 years.

You graduated from North High School in Worcester and were named to a New England High School Baseball team selected by the St. Louis Cardinals. You spent playing in the Cardinals organization but decided to attend college giving up a shot at pro ball. You also played in the Blackstone Valley League and were selected the most valuable player in that league.

You were an avid golfer and qualified for the Massachusetts Amateur Championships four times. At Worcester State you were the vice-president of your class and were active in the Newman Club and participated in numerous Intramural Athletic events.

You have been a teacher and principal in the Northborough School system since 1961.
