RHS TRACK & FIELD HISTORY

 

RHS BOYS’TRACK

            In the spring of 1933, Roseburg was the district track champion and placed 2nd at state.

            In 1947, 90 boys turned out for track at RHS under new coach Jack Newby.  Frank Purdy followed Jack Newby in 1950.

            Before 1940, the track was a cinder track with a nice curb on the inside of the running track.  In the early 1940’s the track took a down turn.  The curb was conflicting with baseball, which was using a field about where today’s new north bleachers are located.  The curb was buried and the cinders were covered up.  Later, the baseball field was moved to today’s vocational building location.

            In 1975, a new all-weather track was installed.  The track was designed to have eight lanes for the straight-away and the rest of the track six lanes.

            In 1997, another new track was installed with a full 8 lanes of 400 meters for the entire oval.  Also, new covered grandstands were erected on the north side with bleachers on the south area.

RHS GIRLS’ TRACK

            In 1965, the girls’ track program began at RHS and produced the first girls’ track state championship.

            In 1982, the RHS girls’ track team piled up a dual win streak of 115, which lasted until April of 1997, with a loss to South Medford.

            Heading into 1986, the RHS girls’ track team captured the SOC league championships 8 years in a row, ending their string in 1995.

            The girls’track team has been a recipient of two all-weather tracks.  The first coming in 1975 and the second coming in 1997.
