      Clarkston (TN) -- Wilma Rudolph
      Correct on Barberton (the school from which he was graduated) for Davis. Also correct on Rudolph, although the school is Clarksville.

      11 points total and into the lead.

          Good one! Correct for 8 points.

          No extra points offered, but what was her last name from her days at Gig Harbor?

            List

            The Clarksville (TN) Olympian was Wilma Rudolph, who averaged 38 points for the basketball team at Burt High.

            Was Chicago Tilden Ralph Metcalfe?

              Clarksville has been gotten.

              As for Tilden Tech, the ground rules have gotten tougher as we've gone along. This isn't Jeopardy; you can't give your answer in the form of a question.

              Do you want to make a positive statement about Tilden?

                  Cheese is correct for Ribault. 9 points to put tandfman in the lead with 13.

                      Yes, for ten points, one more than you would have gotten when you asked the question!

                        She's from good Scandaroovian (I think?) stock and went by the name Doris Severtson.

                          Wichita, KS had six or seven high schools sixty years ago. I don't know when there was a single Wichita, KS HS but Jim Ryun went to Wichita East, although he lived in Wichita SE school district.

                            I have a nagging memory that there was an Olympic thrower or decathlete from Wichita early in the last century but cannot come up with a name.

                              Roosevelt: Fortune Gordien, who (at least nominally) was a "coach" at my HS after his retirement
                              Auburn: Don Lash
                              Bear River: has to be L. Jay Silvester
