Teutopolis High School Track – Teutopolis, IL

Teutopolis High SchoolI would say that the “Wooden Shoes” would qualify as an unusual high school mascot, so their home track is the featured track of the day.  The mascot for Teutopolis High School was chosen by Coach John Harold Griffin in Wooden shoes1932, to honor the town’s German heritage and one of its pioneers George Deyman, who carved wooden shoes.  The track has six lanes and a black surface.  It looks like the high jump and pole vault are located inside the two ends.  The long and triple jumps are outside on the south end.    The shot put and discus are outside on to the east, but are very close to the track, which makes it very nice.  While this is certainly not a huge facility like some of the others I’ve posted from Texas recently, this looks like a nice track for a small school and town like Teutopolis with a population of 1500 people.
