Tom Jones put Wisconsin track on the map from 1913-48. During his long tenure as coach, UW track teams won 15 Big Ten titles, including nine in cross-country.
Jones is given credit for developing such stars as fellow state Hall of Famers Chuck Fenske, Don Gehrmann and Arlie Mucks. Jones also served as an assistant Olympics track coach in 1948.
Along with Alonzo Stagg and John Griffith, Jones is credited with starting the NCAA outdoor track championships. He is a member of the USA Track and Field Hall of Fame.
