BLITZ HOF 2022: Track & Field

TRACK & FIELD

ETHAN SMITH

Ethan Smith had a stellar career in cross country and probably moreso in track and field. He won a total of five region titles, two of them individually (junior year in 400 & 800). In 2021, he won region titles in the 400, 800, 4×400, and 4×800. He was the anchor on the 4×400 team that won region in 2022 (while finishing second in the 400, 800, and 4×200). He finished inside the top-5 at state three times (and had four podium finishes in total), including fourth and fifth in the 800 in junior and senior year, respectively. He was a vital part of the Dawson County record-setting 4×400 and 4×800 teams, which each won a region title as well. His PR in the 400 was 51.53 and 1:56 in the 800. (2,357 votes)

JADA PITTMAN

Jada Pittman leaves Jefferson as one of the most successful athletes in recent memory in track and field. She finished her career with a state title in the long jump, and was fifth that year in the 100. She won a total of seven region championships, and seven top-10 finishes at state. Her PR was 12.17 in the 100, 19-3.25 in the long jump, and 36-5 in the triple jump. Imagine what else she could have done had she not lost the 2020 season to COVID-19. (752 votes)

MATTHEW SCHROEDER

Matthew Schroeder is a two-way BLITZ HOFer (earning it in XC as well). The distance star won a pair of state titles in his 2022 senior season, taking the top spot in the 800 and 1600. In track and field, he let go of the 3200 after his junior year. It paid off, as he won the region titles in the 800 and 1600 as well as a senior. He finished with four top-10 finishes at state and three region titles. His PRs including 1:54 in the 800, 4:22 in the 1600, and 9:57 in the 3200. He could have had more had he not lost the 2020 season. (646 votes)
