Today, Saturday the 22nd of January, the funeral for Bill O’Keefe will be at Resurrection Parish in Santa Rosa off of Stony Point at noon.
I had the pleasure of coaching with Bill at Montgomery in the late 1980’s.
Bill put in many coaching years for the Vikings including four years as head coach from 1980-1983.
As head coach his boys teams had a 24-8 dual meet record and the girls were 19-12.
Both teams were Santa Rosa City Meet Champions in 1980.
The boys team that year went on to place 2nd at the NCS 3A meet.
Some of the stars those years were
Dave Rodriquez, Montgomery 5th 800m 1:51.87
Chris Day, Montgomery 6th discus 174-4
Dave Rodriquez, Montgomery 7th 800m 1:51.54
1982 NCS MOC
Larry Plinski, 180-9 Discus Champion
