May 15, 1948 Coaldale's Tom Flyzik wins both the discus and shot put to help the Tigers claim the District 11 Class B championship. Coaldale scores 75 1/2 team points to finish ahead of runner-up Summit Hill (52 1/2 points). The Tigers also receive first-place finishes from Charley Zlock (440), Mike Gregus (mile), Joe Rilo (broad jump), Tony Adamec (javelin) and the half-mile and mile relay teams.
