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.
