        Jesse Bradford of Shafter CA set HS record in 180y low hurdles with 18.4 in 1957. He also won California State Meet that year. Don't knowwhat happened to him after that.

            The relation between "Bonanza" and track and field is that Michael Landon was one of the top two javelin throwers in high school.

                          I'll also take a crack at Bob Mathias' prep school. My copy of "The Bob Mathias Story" is on my mother's bookshelf at home, so from memory I think it was Kiski Prep (or maybe Siski Prep) in Pennsylvania.
