    Hey Gary.....I heard a long time ago that Skidmore went to college ( Indiana, Illinios, who knows) and hurt his hand in a basketball game and didn't throw too much after that. A much better source would be Ed Grant....go to www.njsiaa.org and scrool down to Ed Scullion's site for track.....you can find Ed Grant's address there.

    Not from the Camden area, but from the Philly area. Will that do? Reid went briefly to Morehouse. Odd, because it was tougher academically than the DI places he was considering and where he would have been a Prop.48.

    If any of you are from the Camden area, do you recall what college Philadelphia Central H.S. sprinter William Reid went to? He made national news in HS, but I never read of him as a collegian.

    Deae Keith: What is your birthdate and height and weight when you competed? I was formerly the historian of USATF (since retired) but still keep a database of T&F athletes. Thanks. - Hal Bateman

    Getting back to the BMOC in 1973, I am pretty sure Duffy of BC was the runner in 6th place. I think McDermott of PC won in about 4:15 just ahead of Kevin Walsh of St. Joe's. Stukey finished somewhere between them and Duffy.

    As I said in my earlier post, Amitrani ran 9:01.4 at the 1976 NJ All-Group meet at Rutgers. DiJoseph ran 8:59 for 3200 at the same meet, which was held at South Plainfield. I remember both races clearly because I was there in the stands.

    Maybe Knut and Arne Kvalheim? :-)

    I think 6th in that mile race was either Bill Duffy of Bergen Catholic or Rich Stuckey of Teaneck.

    Conheeney also anchored PC to the Penn DMR that year. PC also missed Essex Catholic's 4 x 1 mile record by just 0.4 seconds. Conheeney ran his 9:02.2 at Golden West. He did 9:04 at Bergen MC.

    Two years ago, I watched the indoor USATF meet at the Armory with Ron Spiers of Paramus who went on to run 3:56 in the mile. Were there any other sub 4:00 milers who grew up in Bergen?

    The Bergen COunty Meet of Championships in 1973 that Tim Conheeny ran the 9:02.2 brings back memories. For a couple of weeks, everybody talked about the big showdown in the 2 Mile among Tim, George MacKay, and Bucky Miller. But the Mile ended up being the sleeper event with six runners under 4:20! In those days scoring was 5 deep and sixth place (4:19.8) did not even get a medal or in the summaries but the sixth place kid (from Bergen Catholic, I believe) did get an article written about him in the Record.
