Boys basketball: Ex-Milton coach planning reunion


Schrecengost was hired by the superintendent to coach Milton in 1964 after graduating from Westminster College.

The planned reunion is scheduled for Labor Day Weekend -- specifically Saturday, Aug. 31 -- with a brunch at the Watson Inn in Watsontown at 11 a.m. followed by a get-together later that evening.

The reunion isn't limited to simply the players from 1964 through 1969, but to all former coaches and cheerleaders during that time span as well.

"We're opening it up to the whole program at that time period," Schrecengost said.

Any former players who played on Milton's boys basketball team between 1964 and 1969 are encouraged to contact Schrecengost at either his home phone (770-926-3733) or his cell phone (678-427-2784). He can also be reached via email at

Friends or relatives of anyone from those teams -- be it a player, cheerleader or coach -- are encouraged to contact Schrecengost at their earliest convenience in regards to the reunion.

"Our problem is that we don't want to leave anybody out. We don't have contacts with everybody," Schrecengost said. "Anything that we can do to get everybody aware of the fact that there is this event that is going to be held on that Aug. 31 date, that's what we want to try to do."
