Monte Vista looking for past cross country champs

The Monte Vista High School Alumni Fun Run has grown over the last four years to reunite cross country graduates to run against the current team, said coach Mike Davis, but he is looking for more past grads.

"It's hard to get the word out to all the families that have had kids go through the program," Davis said. "Some of the school record holders are from the mid 70's, and it would be great to reach out to them. A guy named Bill Soloman holds the mile and two-mile record, since 1972, and the recent athletes would love to meet him and hear his story."

This year's Alumni Fun Run will take place at 9 a.m., Sunday, Aug. 9, at Oak Hill Park. Davis asks alumni to telephone him at 437-8360 or e-mail

I am Bill's brother and ran with him on the Monte Vista Cross Country and Track teams from 1970 to 1972. He was a superb runner and would be very proud to know that his mile and two mile records still stand after almost forty years. Sadly, Bill passed on some years ago, but I appreciate very much that he has been remembered by the Monte Vista Cross Country and Track program.
