Coach Don offers words of encouragement and advice to Team NOVA.
For 33 years, Don lead the Tufts University swim team to a slew of celebrated victories. But perhaps more importantly, he was a beloved mentor to countless athletes—sharing what one former protégée called the "Megerle Magic." When he stepped down from the swim team in 2004, he became director of the Tufts President's Marathon Challenge and for the past few years has provided his coaching wisdom and inspiration to runners raising money to support nutrition, medical, and fitness research and education at Tufts. With his personal touch, he was deeply involved in all aspects of Team NOVA's training.
