Treye Jackson to be inducted into track HOF

Former Newton Senior High football and track standout Treye Jackson will be inducted into the Iowa Track Coaches Association Hall of Fame Dec. 7 at the Gateway Center in Ames.

Jackson will be recognicezed for his 10.5 second time in the 100-meter dash, which he ran in the prelim round of the 1981 state track and field meet.

That record has held up to this day. Jackson won the 100 and 200 in 1980 and followed it up by winning the 100, 200 and 400 races in 1981, becoming the first athlete in Iowa history to win all three events on the same day.

Jackson will be inducted alongside Todd Peverill from Waterloo East and Chuck Schoffner of Ankeny.
