  • 1st Junior. in HS to hit 60'

    You guys are soooo good, this should be a piece of cake. I do not know the answer.

    In 1957, as juniors, Dallas Long tossed 61'5" and Jim Smith, a lefty, heaved 60'5". I believe one of these was the first junior to go over 60'. Anyone know who got there first?

    a question like that requires the digging out of old T&FN's, but they're at home and I'm at work, but maybe later....

          So we should take this thread to its logical conclusion: who were the first frosh and soph to hit 60? I know who the frosh was, but not the soph.

              No, he's many years from being a correct answer.

                (freshman?) Arnold Campbell 60'3, 1981, age 14!
                67'3 1/4 as a soph in '82?

                  Looks like Cliff Kell was the first soph to hit 60' back in 1965. He had a best that year of 62' 10-3/4".

                    Campbell is the right answer for the frosh (for extra credit, whose record did he break?)
