Tollefson is quick to deflect attention. After all, he said, his team consists of plenty of good athletes.
St. Croix Lutheran finished second in the Tri-Metro Conference and, after winning the Class 2A, Section 3 True Team title, finished sixth at state. Senior Joe Werz won the conference long jump title and senior Riley Hillstrom is one of the top triple jumpers in all of Class AA.
The school won three consecutive Class 1A True Team titles from 2007 through 2009, but hasn’t finished better than third since moving to Class 2A.
Nothing is guaranteed in track and field, Schacht said, no matter how easy Tollefson can make it look.
“You can enjoy the successes, but I tell the kids … track can sometimes be very humbling,” Schacht said. “Sometimes, you clip a couple hurdles, or you lose a little form.
“Jon has that mentality: Stay hungry, stay humble, work hard and don’t take things for granted. And then good things will happen.”
