It has been some time since Mineola varsity golf coach Al Weidlein has had something special on his hands. While golf has received unfettered support from the athletic administration of the Mineola School District, building a successful squad is a challenge in a community without facilities. Playing against schools such as Herricks, Hicksville, East Meadow, Locust Valley, Cold Spring Harbor and Roslyn, the Mustangs face competition from schools that regularly play on prestigious, private courses. This year, though, coach Weidlein has two individuals who may be among the best to wear the Mustang red and black upon the green.
