EDITORS NOTE: This is the third in a series of at least three weeks of state track memories of the past featured in the Clay County News files.

As the story published in the May 24, 1990 issue of the Clay County News shared— To win a state championship in any sport, a team needs three things to happen: 1) to have your best athletes produce in the clutch, 2) to have some up and coming athlete, or athletes stun the competition with a stellar performance, and, 3) get a little help from the competition.

The story went on to share—The Sutton Mustangs benefited from all three of those factors at the 1990 Nebraska State Track Meet last weekend in Omaha. Sutton claimed its first ever Class C state track title and brought home a third state championship trophy in two seasons.

EDITORS NOTE: This is the second in a series of at least three weeks of state track memories of the past featured in the Clay County News files. Next week we will feature the Sutton boys 1990 Class C state track championship.

In an era that brought home numerous state track meet medals to Clay County, one of several big moments at the 1990 Nebraska State Track and Field Championships was a pair of gold-medal performances by Clay Center’s Klay Kluver and Sutton’s Clint Jones.

Kluver, who returned as the king of high jumping in Class D from the 1989 season, where he won top honors in the event with a leap of 6-6, returned to the scene in 1990 as a junior, to capture the ultimate gold, the all-class gold medal with a 6-7 effort.
