* Angels Connectinq

* Rare sighting of two Marquette Invitational Champions photographed together on a San Clemente beach. Former Angel teammates Mike Ptaschinski ('68) and Gary Rodgers ('70) wrestled for Coach Jim Welsh '56, Gary on the '70 WISAA State title squad. Gary and his wife Nancy flew in from Maple Gove, Minnesota, for a few days before heading off to Sequoia National Park. Still arguing which team was better, the boys were hoping Dick Ruetz (69) would stroll by so they could kick sand in his face.
