HS Buzz: The Kiski School honors Beano Cook
TribLIVE Sports Videos
Beano Cook was a generous donor to The Kiski School before he passed away last October.
Saturday, he was recognized for his contributions to his former school, which celebrated the opening of the Carroll “Beano” Cook ‘49 Outdoor Athletic Center.
The Kiski School also dedicated the Donald H. Jones Athletic Stadium and the Orr Track and Field.
Also recognized at halftime of The Kiski School's game against Linsly School, W.Va. was the school's first hall of fame class: Cook (1949), decathlete Robert Mathias (‘49), wrestler Jack Fuellhart (‘62), swimmer Bill Bower (‘73) and the 1977 and ‘78 football teams.
KO to dedicate gym
Keystone Oaks will recognize the late Dave Kling, a longtime teacher and wrestling coach, by renaming the school's gymnasium in his honor at a 7 p.m. ceremony Thursday.
The 1965 alum who died last December posted a record of 381-152-2 in 30 years with the Golden Eagles, making him the fourth-winningest coach in WPIAL history when he retired in 2003. He was named WPIAL coach of the year in 1986 and has been inducted into several halls of fame, including the Pennsylvania Sports Hall of Fame Western Chapter, and the Indiana (Pa.) University Athletic Hall of Fame.
