    How about national records? Peter O'Connors Irish LJ record of 7.61, set in 1901 (which was the WR at the time), wasn't broken until 1990. Hard to beat that !

    Although this thread is ostensibly about high school records, my college long jump record was set in 1923. It was a good record for the time, but this is also an indictment of the quality of long jumping at my college in recent years.

    I thought a 1930 school record was remarkable, but 1908? Wow! Makes us think about the whole idea of "progress" in a slightly different way.

    There are very old school records in events which are no longer held.

    Albert Gutterson at the University of Vermont jumped 7.60/24-11 in 1908, and it is still the University of Vermont record. Considering men's track has been reduced to club status, I highly doubt that this will ever be broken, and I haven't found an older record yet.

    For more active programs, the Harvard record in the long jump is from 1921. I think Oberlin College has a really old mile relay record as well from the 1920's. But Gutterson's mark pretty much is the standard.

    At my old high school, Hinsdale Central, in Illinois, the current school record for the long jump is 23 feet that was set in 1930! Does anyone know of a longer standing school record in a track or field event that is still contested?
