Athlete’s Visit

May 23, 2014
By

It is always nice when a coach’s former athlete stops by for an unexpected visit.  This has happened twice in the last week for me.  While I was at track practice Pete Schmidt (now living in Mishawaka, Indiana) stopped by.  Pete was a track and cross country runner at Batesville High School in the 70’s.  Pete held the 800 meter and 200 meter record at Batesville until a couple of years ago.

A few days later, Dan Weisenbach (now living in Carmel, Indiana) stopped by the house.  Dan was also a track and cross country runner from the same era as Pete.  Dan, at one time, held the 400 meter record at Batesville.  This record has been broken several times since.  Dan is now a financial advisor and has a part-time office in Oldenburg.

It was a lot of fun talking with both of them.  It is nice for any coach to see the young men/women they have coached become successful adults with families of their own.  Thank you Dan and Pete for stopping by!
