Support of late best friend still sticks with Cobbers track star
Moorhead - Concordia senior Alex Benzegala has the date etched in his memory - May 17, 2006. That's the day he lost his best friend, Sam Stewart.
Stewart, at 14 years old, died that day after a battle with leukemia.
"That was the worst day of my life," said Benzegala, who was an eighth-grader at the time. "He meant a lot to me."
