Track & Field Records
A Tradition of Excellence!
Through the many years of Richfield track, Richfield has been home to some of the top boys track athletes in the state. Noah Barnes was a state champion in 1993. Pat Akpaette was a state champion in 2001, setting an MSHSL Meet Record and the MSHSL Class AA Record. Experiencing similar success at the state meet as Akpatte was Obsa Ali. Obsa was State Champion in 2013 in the 3200, in which he set an MSHSL Meet Record. In addition to state championships in 1987 and 1988, Steve Holman had a track career that included a 1992 NCAA Outdoor 1500 championship and Olympics appearance and a 1999 U.S. Outdoor 1500 championship. And while each season's squad produces performances that challenge the all-time top performances, some records have stood for nearly 40 years!
