    I would argue that Larry James is the wrong answer; he's not as significant as Craig Masback.
    Milt Campbell?
    Plainfield NJ, IIRC.

    I knew he meant James, and we established earlier that reading dj's mind was part of the game. :-)

    Significant in the broader t&f sense, yes, but not strictly as an athlete.

    One correct: Sikeston (Mo) was where George Woods went to school. 14 points.

    Gig Harbor HS (WA) - Doris Brown
    Good one! Correct for 8 points.

    No extra points offered, but what was her last name from her days at Gig Harbor?
    She's from good Scandaroovian (I think?) stock and went by the name Doris Severtson.
    Most likely Scandinavian as her name was Severtsen. But I screwed up the high school, which was Peninsula HS in Gig Harbor, not GHHS.

    Related to Wichita, Jim Ryun and Archie San Romani jr, both went to Wichita East. As pointed out during their attendance , there were at least 5 public high schools in Wichita. I believe Bill Nieder went to high school in Lawrence and also played football for them.

    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.

    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.
