Rockawayites Place First At Golf Tourney
We hear that some ex Rockawayites, Steve Schmeelh and Tom Coogan, (past St. Francis de Sales, 1970-71 Brooklyn/Queens, CYO champs, 26-1 with Paulie Fitz as coach) picked up a prestigious engraved glass golf trophy.
On August 18 at the world famous U.S. Open Baltusrol Country Club in New Jersey, both captured first place in the 2003 Heisman College Football Charity Golf Tournament.
It’s quite a feat considering many well known athletes were at the event. Even as they age, we see their athletic abilities continue towards the top.
