Coed Varsity Track · State Track Results – STATE CHAMPION JAKE RETHMAN


 

Jake Rethman capped off a stellar career as a Fort Loramie Redskin runner with a State Championship in the 1600 M run. Jake finished with a time of 4:23.88, just .08 off the school record held by Tom Ballas. He finished the last lap in an amazing 59 seconds on the biggest stage.

After the race, Jake had the following to say (per SDN), “After that first lap, I thought it would become a sit-and-kick type of race,” Rethman said. “Going into that last 200, it was just an all-out guts finish — really about the last 400 meters. It wasn’t a race I was expecting, but Joe and I have been working on ours kicks a ton.”
