Sports Hall of Fame in 2002, died last
month at age 93.
He was an All-American track star
in hurdles from 1937-1941 at Wayne
State University and a national Amateur
Athletic Union track champion in 1937,
1939, 1940 and 1941. Between 1936 and
1941, he set 10 world and U.S. indoor
track records, and he tied five others.
He's famous for breaking the world
record in the 200-meter hurdles twice
in one day. It happened July 3, 1937, at
the AAU championships in Milwaukee.
Tolmich was clocked in :23.4 in his heat
and :23.3 in the finals.
Tolmich was inducted into the Wayne
State Athletic Hall of Fame in 1976, as a
member of the first induction class.
World War II interrupted Tolmich's
track career. In 1942, he was commis-
sioned as a lieutenant in the U.S. Army
Air Corps.
Born March 30, 1917, in Detroit,
Tolmich was residing in Fishers, Ind.,
a suburb of Indianapolis, at the time
of his death. He and his wife Maggi
(Whisenhart) lived in Chicago for 30
years before moving to the Indianapolis
area in 1997.

rett Lubanski was the driv-
ing force behind an almost
overnight transformation of
the Kenai River (Alaska) Brown Bears
from a last-place to a playoff team in
the North American Hockey League.
The 20-year-old Farmington Hills
native and Walled Lake Western High
School graduate was rewarded for his
efforts over three seasons by being the
first player inducted into the team's
Brown Bear Hall of Fame. He's also the
only inductee.
During an on-ice ceremony last month
in the Brown Bears' arena in Soldotna
that included his father, Paul Lubanski,
billet parents Shorty and Gwen Johnson
(his local host family), and team general
manager Nate Kiel, Brett was presented
an engraved trophy of a Brown Bear, and
a brown-and-gold banner with his No. 9
was raised to the rafters.
Brett is the Brown Bears' all-time
leading scorer with 159 points. The
5-foot-11, 185-pound forward served as
team captain the last two seasons.
Now too old to play junior hockey,
he's headed to Holy Cross University to
