IHS track donation honors Zhulkies

A $1,175 donation from a donor was made this spring to the Ishpeming High School track and field program to honor the memory of school alumni and brothers Tim and Pete Zhulkie. From left are Bradly Zhulkie, grandson of Pete Zhulkie and grand-nephew of Tim Zhulkie; Christie and P.J. Pruett, IHS track and field coaches; and Marissa Maino, granddaughter of Pete Zhulkie and grand-niece of Tim Zhulkie. Tim and Pete were four-year, three-sports athletes at IHS, later coaching youth. Tim Zhulkie was inducted into the Upper Peninsula Sports Hall of Fame in 1990 after establishing two U.P. records in his senior year of 1956 — 10.2 seconds in the 100-yard dash and 22.6 seconds in the 220. Set on a cinder track, both records held for more than decade. (Submitted photo)
