Lane used sports as springboard for success

The one thing Doug Lane was good at as a Cedar Rapids Jefferson High School student back in the mid-1960s was throwing a 12-pound steel ball.

He could throw it so far, in fact, that after 46 years he still holds the state shot put record as well as the high school record at the Drake Relays.

When he heaved the shot 70 feet, 11 inches at a meet in Dubuque on a mild day in May in 1968, it was a remarkable 10 feet farther than any Iowa prep had thrown before and five feet farther than any has done since.

“A perfect day,” Lane, now 64, recalled on Friday while watching this year's J-Hawk track squad practice at Kingston Stadium. “Everything came together.”

It set the national record then, too, by more than a foot and put him on the cover of the prestigious Athletic Journal.

Long since living in California after he left Cedar Rapids for an All-American and NCAA championship stint at USC, he was back in town to visit relatives. And he asked Jefferson Coach Ron Tower if he could talk to the track team.

“I've wanted to do this for a long time,” he said.
