From 1953-1982, the Ada boys track and field was a mainstay at the top of Oklahoma high school track and field. Nearly as dominant in track and field as in football, Ada won 6 state titles and finished runner-up 13 times from 1953-1982. During those 29 years, Ada finished in the top three 23 times. Ada competed in the state's highest classification from 1953-1956, and in the second highest classification from 1957-1981. There was obviously a great deal of pride, dedication and hard work that went to the program by the athletes and coaches. Here's a look at what those young men achieved and built. The rich tradition of Ada boys track and field.
