James W. Liebertz Gymnasium

On Wednesday, October 10, 1990, O'Hara Hall took on a new look when the gymnasium was dedicated to Captain James Walter Liebertz, Director of Athletics at Kings Point from 1950-1972. Liebertz began his Kings Point career as head coach of the track and field team in 1945. Two months later, he became an Assistant Athletic Director, and on January 1, 1950, Liebertz was named Director of Athletics, a position he held for over 22 years. As the Kings Point Director of Athletics, Liebertz was responsible for increasing the varsity athletic program from five sports to 16 varsity teams. He fought for and saw the split sea year program implemented and also began the tradition of the Annual Varsity Awards Dinner.
