    No, not online. I pulled this out of Jack Shepard's T&FN High School Annual.

    Thanks
    Well, I just missed ya, because in 1979 I lived in Sterling, Illinois where Westwood is located and used to officiate at those meets. We were living at our in-laws while I took courses at Northern Illinois Univ. Westwood is a really impressive indoor sports facility for a very small town.

    A hand-timed 6.2 for 60 yards would convert to 6.44 for auto-timing at that distance, auto timing producing longer times than hand timing. And the conversion from 60 yards to 55 meters would add another 0.04 seconds, bumping your time up to 6.48. Unfortunately, you were going the opposite direction with your conversions.

    As for the 1978 national list at 60 yards, there were 18 high schoolers who ran faster than 6.2 or 6.44. So consider yourself tied for 19th in the nation in 1978, and first in the state of Illinois.

    What list are you looking at? Illinois doesn't seem to have much in the way of historical info for Indoor competition.
