Grove produced two state track champs

PENNY WEICHEL

If you didn't know Franklin's Jack Fultz won the Boston Marathon in 1976, then you also might not know that Rocky Grove had two PIAA state champions - in track. Especially since the Orioles no longer field a track team.

But in 1959, coach Vince Curran's Grove squad produced not one, but two state champs in junior Bob Flickner, who clocked 10.4 to claim the Class B (now AA) 100-yard dash, and sophomore DeWitt Green, who cleared 11-43/4 to win the pole vault.
