A message from the one and only Claudine Happel regarding the Terror Twilight Track Meet :

With 20 years of coaching Track and over 40 years of involvement in the Appleton West Track program, I have enjoyed seeing AW Track evolve from cinders to an all-weather track and field facility.  I now have now joined up with a group of like-minded people whose goal is to share our facility with all of our West community.
Whether you were a distance runner sprinter, hurdler, jumper, or thrower, I hope you had positive experiences within the AW Track program.  Each of you was an integral member of the team and I hope that Track was important part of your life when you were a student at Appleton West.
Have you run any road races or do you maybe run for fun?  Running remains a passion for me.  I still enjoy my early morning long runs after over 40 decades. Whether you compete/participate(or have done so in the past) in races or would like to see if you can still throw or jump, the Track Meet for the Ages is a perfect opportunity for you.  Put together a 1600M relay team of former Terror Track members or maybe a family team for even more fun !
Hoping you will be able to join me/us for the Terror Twilight Track Meet for the Ages at West’s “new” Happel Sports Complex for an evening of fun, memories and participation in the track meet itself.   Please join us for the school tour, the track meet itself, and the alumni social afterwards.

 A Greeting From Coach Smrecek:

As I sit here thinking about an alumni track meet, I said to myself, “wow, I really miss all of you old guys!” Yes, I still am alive, I would really like to see many of you here on July 11 this summer for a track event at West High School. This is a chance for us to gather with our greater Appleton West family on our updated track facilities. While some of you may want to compete in our event, that certainly is not requirement for attendance. We plan on having an alumni track social after the meet. By the way, I do plan on participating in the shot put event myself. Some former and present assistant coaches, as well as former and present head coaches plan on attending. Come and join us for some bragging, embellishment and some catching up. We finally have a nice facility for all of us to enjoy.
