            During the 2022 spring season, coach Sawyer led the Teuton boys track/field team to wins at the Hillsboro, Sterling, and Moundridge Invitationals before finishing out the regular season with a Heart of America League Meet championship for the second year in a row.

            The Teutons then proceeded to be crowned the Class 2A Regional Track/Field champions before closing out the 2022 campaign with a third-place finish at the Class 2A state meet in Wichita.
