Olympic games are times of International celebration. In 1996, Jasper County Indiana got to share a little bit of that spirit as the torch relay passed through DeMotte, Rensselaer and Remington, on its way to the opening of the Atlanta games that July 19.
We got several responses to the picture we printed in Peek at the Past two weeks ago, many of which helped us identify the players, coaches and managers who helped Rensselaer Central High School’s boys basketball team capture a sectional in 1969. They include (first row, L to R) Karen Zacek, Deb Cochran, Julie Amsler, Teresa Gates and Linda Cochran. (Second row, L to R) John Tilton, Bill Williams, Greg Bailey, Jeff Templeton, Mike Denton, Dave Yeoman and Rick Linback. (Third row, L to R) Greg Lintner, Coach Lary McCray, Dave Baer, Mike Hooker, Ron Fenwick, Bob Clouse, Larry Edmonds, Russ Martin, Ron Huhn, Coach Dave Day and Jay Rodia. Photo provided.
