Sports's Champion of Champions Series: Southern Door Boys' Track

Led by head coach Brent Claflin, Southern Door captured one of the two all-time state track championships in the history of the county. 


Four of the Eagles' 13 individual state titles came at that year's meet held on the campus of UW-La Crosse. Terry Gustafson ran a 40.38 300M Hurdles time to capture his state title while two relays (400M Relay, 43.83 and 1600M Relay, 3:25.35) also won gold. The Eagles didn't do all of their damage on the track that year. Joe Gilson cleared 14 feet to win the state championship in pole vault.


Other state championships won by Eagles athletes include Alex Tassoul (2010, Long Jump) Jim Flanigan (shot put and discus, 1988-1990), and Al Johnson (1997-1998, shot put).
