Belt senior Koltin Haugrose knows how to cross the finish line on the track and win for the Huskies. On Friday at the 8-C District track and field meet in Lewistown, he won first place in five events to include the 100, 200 and 400 meter dashes, as well as, the 110 and 300 meter hurdles.
As a sophomore, he won a Class C State title in the 300 meter hurdles and in the 4x400 meter relay. He also placed first at State in the 400 meter dash in his junior year. Even though he's collected a lot of wins, he tries to remain low key about his achievements.
"When people come up to me and say Haugs is going to win this race. I don't really know what to say. I really don't like that in way. I like to being a competitor, and I think that's really helped me a lot. Always staying quiet and just pushing my self to the hardest," said senior Koltin Haugrose.
Koltin has also been a competitor on the football field for Belt. Plus, he's played on the boys basketball team, winning a Class C State basketball championship in his junior season. His teammate and friend Matt Metrione says Koltin is a reliable player on the court too.
"Games that we're down or something like that and he's got the ball. I've always got the feeling that something good is going to happen," said senior Matt Metrione.
Koltin will embark on another journey after high school as he's signed to play basketball at Rocky Mountain college next year.
"Rocky is a really nice school so I think it'll be a good fit for me," said Haugrose.
"We're very proud of him. We've got a lot of kids that went on to very successful colleges careers and they're turning into great citizens and that's what we're pumping out of Belt, and he's going to be one of the good ones that represents us down the road," said Belt athletic director Jeff Graham.
With the State track and field meet just around the corner, Koltin hopes to walk away with a win.
"Hopefully a State championship in some event. That's ultimate the goal," said Haugrose.
And it's a goal he's accomplished before.
