What's better than winning one event at state? WINNING TWO EVENTS!

Recap of State:
Due to weather state was pushed to Saturday/Sunday and was ran in a final only format. OUR ATHLETES DID AMAZING!

  • The first scored event, Men's Shot Put, Drake Nugent finished 1st! Drake Nugget's state winning throw came on his 4th and final throw of the competition to win by 1.5 inches
  • The last scored event, Men's 4x400, the team of Andrew Wisniewski, Josh Lord, Jake Weidemann and Kaden Lathrop ran away with it to finish 1st! Kaden Lathrop outkicked in the last straightaway two of the top 400 runners in the state to capture the title - he was in 3rd place when getting the baton

Summer Programs

Part of the reason our team has so much success is working out during the offseason. As the season is winding down we need to begin to look towards summer and how each individual athlete can get better. We would like all of our athletes in a summer program, including football, cross country or track speed camp.

Track Speed Camp
  • For current 5th, 6th 7th, 8th, 9th, 10th and 11th graders (2016/17 school year) 
  • Dates: Monday thru Thursday June 5 -30th  @ 11 am
  • Cost - $100 -- Checks payable to HRHS Track
  • Sign-up: June 5 at the entrance of the Main Gym (Camp will meet there each day)
  • No pre-registration is necessary. Click here for permission/signup form.

Cross Country Summer
If you are a distance runner or interested in cross country, Coach Douglass would really push for you to do cross country and summer conditioning. Along with making the cross country team better, you'll become better in track.

  • We will be meeting at trails across the state, the bluffs, daniels park and HRHS at 8am.
  • Monday-Friday from June 5th-July 21st.
  • Cost -- $100 -- Checks Payable to HRHS Cross Country
