In Memory of Coach Rick Stengle

Coach Rick Stengle passed away Sunday morning after suffering several strokes in the past 6 weeks. He skated at SCW as a competitor and then coached full-time at SCW from 1983-2011 and he was an 8-time National Freestyle Skating Coach. He coached part-time for a couple of years after 2011, and often would stop by during his retirement to catch up on rink news. He taught all levels of free skating at all ages and even taught low level ice dancing. Rick had a B.A. from ENC in Boston. Rick will be greatly missed by many of his friends, past students and close associates. Funeral arrangements will be announced at a future date.
