Running Shorts Winter 2022
by Rick Hart
Sad news to report. The YRRC has lost another longtime member and one of the club’s founders, Don Smaltz! Don recently passed away at age 87. Don had quite a running and coaching record through the years. He was a YRRC Hall of Fame inductee as well as the Curbstone Coaches. Don was honored last year by the Poland Track and Cross Country Teams for his dedication to their programs over the years. He led an exemplary and fulfilled life that impacted thousands of students, that he taught or coached. Don will be missed by many and we thank him for the memories.
Correction to the Hall of Fame last newsletter, Becky Rudzik was a 2014 inductee into the YRRC Hall of Fame and was accidentally omitted from that list!
