    How many schools have had three under 4.13 in a conference/league championship? When was the last time a high school guy ran a 4.10 and only placed third in his conference final?

    What is the HS record for the 4xmile (4x1600?). A sub-17 seems feasible.

      Hopefully TFN is up-to-date on the records section:

      4 x 1500 16:03.7 South, Eugene, Oregon Eugene, Oregon 4/30/02
      (Eric Mason 4:05.6, John Chambers 4:05.1, Will Kimball 3:58.5, Matt McGuirk 3:54.5)

      4 x Mile+ 17:06.6 South, Eugene, Oregon Eugene, Oregon 5/07/76
      (Dirk Lakeman 4:16.9, Chris Nielsen 4:19.7, Bill McChesney 4:11.8, John Gustafson 4:18.2)

        How many kids qualify for the CIF prelims? Some quality runners here never make it out of the league.

          How about this one from a district meet in 2003...

          1,600
          1, Steve Magness, Klein Oak 4:01.58
          2, Eric Stanley, Klein 4:03.77
          3, Brian Sullivan, The Woodlands 4:11.14

          You run 4:03+ and get beat.

            Maybe we can split CA into six or eight classes so that everyone gets a medal . . .

              That was a problem with Jesuit back in the day (1986): Both Mastalir twins (each whom had run 4.04 open) in the 1.600m left only one other available spot in the entire conference to qualify for the Sac Joaquin prelims. I may be mistaken, but I believe Jim Thomas of Jesuit grabbed that spot, leaving no qualifiers from any other schools. His brother, Paul, won the 1987 CA CIF State 3.200m and placed second in the 1.600m.

                Apparently the 1st 5 made it through to CIF prelims. The kid in 6th at 4:23.78 was out while the Ocean League champ from Santa Monica is in at 4:37.

                Oh, well. C'est la vie, say the old folks...

                  Dammit, I was just reading this thread and that very race popped into my head, but you beat me to it.

                  Sullivan runs a 4:11 and doesn't make it to the state meet. Ouch.

                    All Finals at State. Only two from each of four Regions make it. Sometimes 4.11 stays home and 4:20+ from another Region goes.
                    On the other hand, I remember an instance 30 + years when a kid from West Texas, who had never broken 4:20, came to State and beat the 4:08 kids from Houston.
