In recognition of the return of spring sports, the Republican is presenting a spring sport that has a rich history at Rensselaer – boys golf – because of the leadership of lomg-time coach Rich Stefanich. Members of the 1971 team, one of Stefanich’s first at RCHS, included (front, L to R) coach Stefanich, Myles Beeching, Mark Malone, Jim Weinberg, Rich Mangas, and Bob Kurtz. (Back, L to R) Rick Smith, Bill Critser, Tom O’Brien, Jeff Tonner, Chris Zorich, Ed Courtright, Tony Cappuccilli and Bill Holbrook. The Bombers finished 16 – 4 in dual meets in 1971and Rick Mangas, who had the low average score for the team, was match medalist in the Northwest Hoosier Conference Meet as a sophomore. Jim Weinberg was named Most Valuable Golfer. Photo from Chaos. Rensselaer Republican 4/7/03
