5/21: Senior Standout - Broadwater's Jack Dolan

Posted: Updated:

Broadwater High School senior Jack Dolan has suited up in four sports for the Bulldogs but wasn't always one of the top distance runners in Class B. 

"I was little bit overweight at the time but I've actually cut off 5 minutes off my time and a lot of that is due to I've had really, really great teammates, my opponents and then my mom, my coach, has helped me so much," said Jack. 

Brooke Dolan helped Jack and his teammates bring the first-ever cross-country state title back to Broadwater County in the fall of 2016. She also develops Jack and the other Dogs distance runners each spring. 

"I learned as much from him as he's ever learned from me. I learned the value of having a younger person make their way up and improve year by year and be patient in that process," said Brooke Dolan.  

"She's just always been there for me to keep my head up, not let me get down on myself too much, and she's just always been there for support," said Jack. 

Jack chose to play basketball instead of wrestle this winter and that meant longtime friend Tyson Racht got to be his teammate for more than just track and field. 

"He always brings like a positive attitude and he always gets other people going with his energy. It's a lot of yelling. It's a good yelling though like he's not getting on anyone. He's just excited to be out there," said Tyson Racht. 

Track and field head coach Travis Rauh says Jack does a great job of including everybody. 

"Sometimes you gotta straighten him back in line but he does a really good job of making every kid on the track team feel important and that's a real big part of being a senior leader," said Coach Rauh. 
Jack remained team-focused while ranking among Class B's top 10 runners in the 1600 and 3200 meters. 
 "The great part about this team is we know if everyone does their job we're gonna do good," said Jack.  
He will soon run off to Montana-Western but is looking to finish this season strong.
