Golf great was one of state's best players

April 20, 2007

This news item came from Bob Woodbury '61, who says, "Today's [Friday, Feb. 23, 2007] Portland Press Herald listed the passing of Jim Veno, class of 62. Orono H.S. has seen some great athletes but in my opinion Jim was the best all around athlete to play at Orono. It didn't matter what sport. Golf was his love and Jim was Maine's all time best, but if he had wanted he could have played any sport at the college level. I saw him throw a Javilin once that would have beat the state record had he been on the track team. In 61 Orono won three state championships, football, basketball and golf. Jim was a key player on all those teams. His senior year I believe Orono won two more. You don't see many Jim Veno's anymore, he was special." From his obituary in the Bangor Daily News (link appears below): "He had a great love for golf, having been the youngest ever to win the Schoolboy Golf Crown at the age of 15. He held several records, honors and titles, having played with such greats as Jack Nicklaus and Sam Snead. Jim Veno was known as one of the state's best all-time players, and one of two players to win the State Open and State Amateur prior to turning pro." At this writing, a celebration of life ceremony for Mr. Veno was being planned for a later date, to be announced.
