ABOUT WINDSOR FRIENDS OF TRACK

The goal of Windsor Friends of Track is to help raise money to support the upkeep of the Murphy-Morse Track & Field Complex located at Windsor High School.  The Track & Field Complex helps benefit not only WHS athletes and students, but also the community members of Windsor and the surrounding areas.

COACH JIM MURPHY
started his teaching and coaching career in Windsor in 1961. He coached Windsor’s Track Team for 26 years.  He also coached Cross Country and Skiing during his tenure at Windsor.  Jim was an accomplished athlete himself while in High School and Prep School and was a member of the Football and Hockey Teams while attending Yale University.  Major accomplishments of Jim’s coaching career included the creation of the First Women’s Track Program, VT State Cross Country Champs 1961, VT State Skiing Champs 1967, along with coaching numerous athletes to Individual State and New England Titles.
 RHETT MORSE
had a predisposition to track, likely due to his relationship to Coach Murphy – his grandfather. Rhett was well known for his performances in the 100M Dash, High Jump, Long Jump and Decathlon. He earned several State Championship Titles and still holds many places on the WHS Record Boards. One of his most notable achievements was winning the New England Decathlon Title in 1990. During his tenure at WHS he also ran Cross Country and competed in Alpine Skiing. After graduation, Rhett went on to ski for Castleton State College for one year before accepting a Full Track Scholarship to the University of Maine.
