Co-Athletes of the Week: Valley Lutheran Track

Posted:
CEDAR FALLS (KWWL) -

Valley Lutheran's John Stone and Tim Swanson had no expectations of winning state titles --but that didn't matter --just by getting a chance to run on Drake's famed blue oval -- they had already made school history.

John and Tim are both charter members of Valley's track program -- started by coach Lucas Tanney just 3 years ago --the two seniors have to practice in grass fields and on the streets of Cedar Falls since the school has no track -- but to these guys no track is no problem --

Tim posted the 16th best 1A 4-hundred time to qualify -- John came in to the meet 20th in the 32-hundred -- but just being the first Crusader athletes to qualify at all has a lot of meaning for both of them.
