Mr Frank Zanazzi Mr. Richard Vaccaro Mr. John Golden Mr. Walter Tonge
Track Athletic Director Football and Baseball Basketball
As we recall the hard-fought athletic contests of this year--some successful, some otherwise--we see a silent
man watching from the sidelines with a critical eye, carefully noticing each block, each rebound, each slide.
That man is the team's leader, its guide, its instructor-its coach. Every successful athletic team has a successful
leader. This, perhaps, was the reason for our athletic prowess this year-our coaching staff.
Heading the staff as Athletic Director, Mr. Richard "Red" Vaccaro carried the main weight of arranging
schedules for all the teams, outfitting the players, compiling the financial reports. Besides that, he coached
thirties' football team, and was Physical Education lnstructor to all freshman classes.
Coach of the varsity football team was Mr. John Golden, who in his first year at the Hilltop brought the
footballers from fifth place in the league standings to the first championship in the scho:zl's history. Mr, Golden
was ably assisted by the popular Bob lvluenter, who returned to his alma mater after some five years, to mold
the strongest line in the city. Mr. Golden also coached the varsity baseball team.
The new year found an old lgnatian coach, Walt Tonge, taking over the reins of the unlimited basketball
team. Mr. Tonge also coached all the lightweight teams.
Leading the track team to the divisional championship and its most successful year in a decade was the old
master himself, Frank Zanazzi, who has built the team in the last two years to one of the city's best. He was
ably seconded this Year by Mr. Thomas Flynn, S.J.
Instructor of the swimming team and one of the hardest working coaches was Mr. Armond Geiser, SJ., wt-o
led the mermen to another successful year.
Credit gces also to five other coaches, who although standing in the shadows of the larger sports, were respon-
sible for a rounded-out athletic program, The first of these was popular "Sarge" MacKenzie, who in crganizing
the boxing team, introduced a sport that is destined for a big boom in the Hilltop. Mr. Rockwell Shaules, SJ.,
who directed the intramural leagues, coached the freshmen baseball team as well as helping Mr. Vaccaro and
Mr. Richard Vachon, S.J., with the lightweight footballers. Mr. Robert Hurst, S.J., labored daily with the hard-
working tennis team at Golden Gate Park. Mr. John Mclntosh, SJ, coached the lightweight baseball team.”
