Track returns after last year's historic title-winning season

Posted: Tuesday, Mar 14th, 2017

The boys' 4x100-meter relay team broke a Cottage Grove record that stood for 12 years.

Around 80 athletes are on the roster for Cottage Grove’s track and field team, an accomplishment that Head Coach Ricky Knutson calls “a great start.” These 80 athletes find themselves in one of the greatest eras for CGHS track and field, and last year’s record-setting season has placed a tall order for the team.

The boys are coming off of the best team finish since 1977. The 2016 boys track and field team took first place in the Sky-Em League and finished in fifth place in the state meet at Hayward Field.

Cottage Grove will be missing several strong contributors that were seniors last year. At the district meet, then-senior Connor Howard broke records and put on the story of the season by taking gold in the 100, 200 and 400-meter sprints, not to mention a silver medal in the 4x100-meter relay.
