    Newspapers archives are good....if you have a subscription...the Times and the Chicago Tribune....searching via Google sometimes gets you there for free...

    Long Distance Log archives are fun to read...

    The new Dyestat.com site does not have archives going back before 1999. Anyone know how xc and T/F from 60's can be found? Thanks

    This post primarily for my friend Cannon... in appreciation of his cousin Sam Francis and team mate Al Sanford mentioned in this thread.
    As per http://www.mtsacrelays.com/info/MtSA...sChampions.pdf :
    That Tustin HS 4x880y team that ran 7:48y in 1965 is still the 6th fastest winning time in Mt.SAC Relays history 53 years later... maybe 5th best if the 7:48y is adjusted to 800m.
    Ahh, the good ol' days!

    I have somethin you guys might be interested in - if you don't already have it. Its a pdf file with the results of all divisions of CIF - SS cross country every year from the 50s (some even before) to 70s or 80s or ?? Top five - sometimes ten - in 'A' , 'AA' , 'AAA' and ...

    Right now, however its in an external hard drive that we may not retrieve all the data. If your interested - hafta figure out how to get - I think it might travel via email. But I won't have answers until tomorrow.

    I'm sure you'd recognize lotsa names

    tc...thanks for the info...all sounds accurate to me. Coach Tom Noon who coached all the above athletes, ended his coaching career at Golden West College.

    Yeah, Sanford ran a 9:19.3 (still the school record) 2 mile and Sam Francis's claim to fame was in winning the 1965 LA Indoor H.S. mile in 4:20.5.

    I do remember -vaguely. I think you guys a a yr or two or 3 older than me - Tustin was a powerhouse - as was Westminster - well there were quite a few. Orange county had some 'early HS pioneers' in mid distances - too bad the 2 mile didn't come around until 1965. Didn't Francis run that pretty well - Sanford too?

    Our college team had guys from all up and down the CIF-SS ... Ventura county to Capistrano - and everywhere in between. Quite a group.

    Still think the CIF SS championships were the best track meets I'd been to. Big showdowns all the time. Plenty of crowd participation and very informed fans, many of whom had been competitors from years past.

    Friday/Saturday night @ Cerritos JC or MSAC - doesn't get better. Everybody runs faster at night - whether they do or not.

    no one and Jhc68...speaking of 4x880 relay marks...do you remember the 7:48.0 by Tustin H.S. I believe in 1965...that record will stand through the millenium! My cousin, Sam Francis was on that team: Craig Lewis, ??, Allen Sanford and Sam Francis.
