Michael Rustad's Memories
Humboldt Track Team of 1964
I was a member of the Humboldt track team of 1964. Theother members were
Chuck Surface, Timothy Lietz, and myself. I remember competingin a
subdistrict track tournament in 1964. The only team memberthat had any
chance of placing was Chuck Surface who won his event.I remember running
the 100 yard dash against Doug Streed of Hallock. We hada rather
unsophisticated track program. I did not even run out ofrunning blocks and
it showed. I remember that Doug Streed ran the 100 in under10 seconds and I
finished well back in the pack. I don't ever remember practicingmuch for
track and it showed. I think that I finished the eventin about 12 seconds
and the fans felt sorry for me! I cannot remember Humboldtdoing well in
track and would appreciate it if other team members wouldcontribute their
memories of our teams.
of our teams.
