Hall of Fame Inductee - Dick Sturhahn

Considered by many to be the finest golfer ever produced by Quincy High School, he was undefeated in regular season matches as a sophomore, junior and senior. He finished third in the state tournament as an individual in 1957 to help the Blue Devils to a second-place finish as a team. Sturhahn won the Quincy Invitational and the district championship as a junior, and won the Champaign Invitational and district title as a senior, when he also finished second individually in the state tournament. He was the dominant player in the Quincy Men's City Championship at this same time, winning it for the first time at age 16 in 1957. Went on to excel with some outstanding golf teams coached by Harry Mussotta at Western Illinois University. Sturhahn was a charter member of the Quincy High School Sports Hall of Fame.
