La Roche College
Scott Lang Memorial Golf Classic
The Scott Lang Memorial Golf Classic, now in its fourth year, is held in honor and memory of its late basketball coach. In 2010, at age 41, Coach Lang tragically passed away on the court while running his Redhawks team through practice. Lang began coaching for La Roche in 1993 and just four years later was named head coach at age 27 the youngest NCAA men’s head basketball coach in the United States.
Coach Lang was an enthusiastic and inspiring figure in the locker room, on the court, and far beyond the La Roche community. His familiar“Stay Blessed” greetings, leadership and infectious smile will remain forever in the hearts of many. After losing their beloved coach, the team’s determination to go forward and win the AMCC title will remain Coach Lang’s legacy.
