  • School Records

    What high school has the best school records in boys and girls track and field? Which college has the best in mens and womens school records? For starters, how about Long Beach Poly in California for the high school division? In college, how about LSU?

    This reminds me of one of my favorite quiz questions (I'll be lucky if no one on here hasn't heard it before). In what race in the early 80s did a runner become the second fastest in history, but still not claim his college's school record?

      Not sure about school records but how about......

      At the 68 games in Mexico City SJS had...

      Ronnie Ray
      John Carlos....bronze/200

      Also in 68 Texas Southern's Jimmy Hines would win the 100 meter gold. In 1972 games Texas Southern's Robert Taylor would win the silver in the 100 meters.

      Can any school hang with Willie Davenport and Rod Milbure both from Southern U.

      Cal's Eddie Hart and Isacc Curtis and Alabama's Calvin Smith and Emmitt King would take first and second in the NCAA 100 meters.

      Prior to 1950 USC had.....

      Howard Drew 9.6
      Charley Paddock 10.4m
      Frank Wycoff 9.4
      Mel Patton 9.3

      ......all world record holders!

      UCLA has had 9 Olympians in just the 100-400 and relays.

      How about these guys that went the JC route

      Ato Boldon SJCC
      Tim Montgomery Blinn
      Brian Lewis Blinn
      Jon Drummond Odessa
      Mo Greene KCJC
      Tyree Washington SBJC
      Butch Reynolds Butler JC
      Lee Evans SJCC
      Bernard Williams Barton County
      The Harrisons Hartnell JC
      Warren Edmonson Merritt
      Micky Matthews Laney
      Coby Miller MeridianJC

      No school and hang with TCU as far as 4x1/4x2 prowess goes.

        I'd guess LB Poly does have best school records for HS. UCLA, Arkansas or USC might have better men's school records than LSU (but maybe not). And probably UCLA women surpass LSU (because of better distance/vertical jump/throw records). Just educated guesses; it would take a coupla days to research this one out.
