Two Lassen High School alumni — Ross Tobin (currently of Erie, Colorado), and Cliff Ward (currently of Portland, Oregon) — qualified to run the Boston Marathon, as they completed a marathon in Sacramento with times making them eligible.

Both Tobin and Ward were stellar student athletes at LHS, and Tobin earned All-American honors in Collegiate Baseball at Colorado School of Mines. Today, both Tobin and Ward are accomplished businessmen and wonderful fathers and husbands.
