Anne Wieland Spaeth '54

Ann always excelled in athletics, having been named to the Philadelphia First Team (lacrosse) in 1958, 1962, and 1965 and the Philadelphia Fourth Team (hockey) in 1962. She was also the Pennsylvania State Ladies Champion for skiing in 1960 and has played on her club teams in tennis and paddle tennis for many years, winning numerous tournaments and awards. In addition, in her spare time, Spaeth rowed regularly and in 1991 came in fifth at the Head of the Schuylkill Regatta. Perhaps her greatest achievements were the years that she spent coaching and instilling in young women the importance of integrity and fair play. Spaeth coached all levels of hockey, basketball, and lacrosse at Springside along with the renowned Phyllis Vare, from the late ’50s to the mid-’60s. She also found time to coach tennis at Germantown Friends School and the Tennis Farm for many years.
