    One can probably say this about coaches from many different sports, but high school golf coaches aren’t just coaches.

    They are ambassadors for the sport.

    Most high school football players will never put on a helmet and shoulder pads again after graduating high school. But once a teenager learns how to play golf, they have learned a lifetime hobby.

    The last time the Rochester football team played Delphi, Bill Clinton was president of the United States.

    The IHSAA put them together as part of the draw Sunday night.

    While the Zebras will play an opponent they haven’t played since 1998, Tippecanoe Valley, Caston and Winamac were assigned opponents they have never played before.

    VOLLEYBALL

    The Rochester volleyball team was feeling the jitters Tuesday.

    They were at home on senior night. They were playing Tippecanoe Valley, their archrival and a team that beat them last year.

    And it was a National Honor Society-sponsored Pink Out where everybody from the fans to the players was wearing pink for breast cancer awareness and raising money for the Fulton County Cancer Fund.

    Rochester (3-4, 3-3 Three Rivers Conference) at Southwood (7-0, 6-0), 7 p.m.

    The Rochester and Southwood football teams are both in the TRC, but many Zebra fans might be recalibrating their compasses this week. RHS hasn’t played Southwood since a 39-7 loss to Barnhart Field in 2015, and they haven’t played at Southwood since a 28-21 RHS win in 2013.

    Historically, the RHS bus has made many happy trips home from Southwood. The 2011 team scored a school record in points in a 74-28 win on Southwood turf. They also won there in 2009, in 2007, in 2005, in 2001, in 1999 and in 1997. (The 2003 game was moved from Southwood to the RCA Dome in Indianapolis, and Southwood won that game 20-3.)

    NORTH MANCHESTER — Nothing keeps the Rochester girls cross-country team from winning races.

    They win from the front of the pack, and they win from the middle of the pack, but they don’t win from the back of the pack. That’s because there isn’t a back of the pack anymore, as they showed at the Three Rivers Conference meet at Manchester High School Saturday.

    They win in the mud. They win when it’s dry. They win when it’s hot, and they win when it’s cool.

    Northfield (2-4, 2-3 Three Rivers Conference) at Rochester (3-3, 3-2), 7 p.m.

    Reece Renie’s first football practice was eight weeks ago. His first start as the quarterback of the RHS football team is against Northfield Friday.

    Renie, a junior who was part of RHS’ 200 freestyle relay team that won the TRC in swimming and a regional qualifier in golf, hadn’t played football since his pee-wee days before deciding to come out for football this year. He worked his way to the backup quarterback spot. With Nick Allen out due to an injury he suffered on a late hit against Peru in a 44-33 loss last week, Renie gets the call.
