Daniel Sutter ’01 Straightaway Challenge

Goal Progress: $14,785.00 / $25,000.00 (59.1%)



Daniel Sutter, Class of 2001, was one of the fastest sprinters the Ripon College track team has ever seen. Fifteen years after his graduation, Dan still holds 10 of the top 11 fastest 110-meter high hurdle times in school history.

Dan was a two-sport athlete at Ripon College and upon graduation served as an assistant track coach for the Red Hawks. He was a three-time private college champion in the event, while also holding Ripon’s outdoor 110 high hurdle record with a time of 15.19, which he set as a senior. Dan ranks sixth all time in career points scored for the Ripon track team. Tragically, Dan died in 2013 at the age of 34 after a courageous battle with cancer.

Join us in carrying on Dan’s legacy of excellence at Ripon College by participating in the Daniel Sutter ’01 Straightaway naming challenge. Your gift will help to ensure that future generations of track athletes who step into the blocks at the new Storzer Center field house will forever remember his name. One-time and recurring donations can be made to the Revitalize campaign for up to two years.
