Coach Ed Teagle had an amazing career in Coaching Track and Cross Country at three different High Schools from 1953 until he retired from Coaching in 1977.  His first Coaching job was at San Dieguito H.S. from 1953 to 1956, where he wound up with a respectable 50w, 19L, and 0 record.  His next Coaching job was at Mar Vista H.S. from 1957 to 1972.  Despite not being blessed with natural speed,  he Coached his teams to an amazing 102w, 22L, 0t record.  Coach Teagle's final leg of his Coaching Career was at Bonita Vista H.S. where he would up with a 41w, 1L, 2t record, and won the S.D. CIF Southern Section  Track Championship for the first time in his career.  It is important to note that in all three of these Coaching experiences, the respective school track teams were either perennial losers, or they had never won a track meet...  Coach Teagle's total win-loss- tie record of 193w, 42L, and 2t is the reason he was inducted into the S.D. Hall of Champions at a Coaching Legend in November of 2007.

The idea of naming the MVHS Track after Coach Teagle was born from Valley Coleman, who was a star athlete and High Hurdler on the MVHS Track Team from 1968-1970.    Valley contacted MVHS Principal Wes Braddock and myself back in the Summer of 2013 and told me that he would like to see if it would be possible to name the MVHS Track after Coach Teagle, because he and so many young athletes were so positively impacted by Coach Teagle.    in September of 2013, a committee of interested Community and Family Members was formed under the leadership of Valley Coleman.  The Committee discussed the idea of naming the MVHS Track after Coach Ed Teagle, and unanimously agreed in favor of the idea. 

In the Summer of 2014, and after a good deal of communication between Valley Coleman, MVHS Principal Wes Braddock, and myself, the Sweetwater Union High School District voted to name the MVHS Track after Coach Ed Teagle.  Subsequently, Valley Coleman proceeded to have a 2.5' X 25' sign(paid for by thte MVHS Alumni Association) made (see attached) and it will be installed on the Football Announcers Booth at the 50 yard line of the MVHS Football Field/Track.  The plan is to conduct a brief ceremony in honor of Coach Teagle, at a Track Meet in the Spring of 2015, at which time the sign will be uncovered and the track will be dedicated in the name of Coach Teagle.
