Liam Brennan (Santa Clara) wins both the Shot (52-03.5) and Discus (176-05) at the 42nd CCS Top 8. His discus toss is also a Santa Clara HS School Record.
Back in the 50's and 60's they used to film the State Meet and you could check it out from the State Offices to show your team. Unfortunately, a fire from the early 80's, I believe, destroyed all of that history.
CCS All-Time Records are being broken left and right. It would appear that at the Arcadia Invite, Grant Morgenfeld (Paly) broke the Junior CCS 2 mile record (previously held by Garrett Rowe, Mt View'09, 8:58.98) with a 8:52.44 converted time. He also broke the 3000m record (held by Nolan Topper, Bellarmine'21, 8:19.14) en-route with a 8:16.71 mark.
There's a new Sheriff in town (or should I say Sheriff's). With the Menlo Boys breaking the CCS 4x1600 record that was held since 1979 by Leigh (17:24.84) with a mark of 17:19.22 while taking 2nd at the MtSAC Relays. The team of Landon Pretre (4:17.0), Aiden Deffner (4:27.6), Will Hauser (4:21.2), Justin Pretre (4:13.4) should have their names on the CCS Record Board for quite some time.
Just under 8 minutes this is a great video on Al Oerter (1956-1968) who was the most dominant thrower everytime the Olympics rolled around.
When was the last time you saw a 44 year old School Record broken at a Dual Meet? For me, almost 50 years until today. At the Homestead @ Lynbrook dual, in the VB 200M - Evan Taylor of Lynbrook ran 21.74 (Wind +2.5) breaking Stan Mitchell (1979) time of 21.8 (yards & hand = 21.91) in his winning effort.
Back in the mid-60s, these were workouts at Occidental College (Oxy) for Distance Runners & Pole Vaulters.
Landon Pretre (Menlo) just broke Brett Gotcher's (Aptos) 23 year old record in the 2 mile (yes I convert) for 15 year olds in CCS. His 9:07.06 --> 9:10.25 surpasses Brett's 9:14.53. The Sophomore class record is 50 years old, held by Mitch Kingrey (San Carlos) with a 9:09.54 standard and this week at MOC APU, Landon ran 9:08.82 (converted).
In 1981 there was an article about The Problem With Duals.
Here's a list of "Sayings" from the 1960's.
In 1970 it went to court on whether athletes with Long Hair should be allowed to compete or not.
Let's go back a few years ($3 race entry fee) to the Water Temple Run.
Two different ways to train distance runners from two of the greats - Nurmi & Tabori.
And just like that - the CCS 1500 record was broken again, actually an en-route mark was found, by Scotts Valley Jeremy Kain (2022-Arcadia) All-Time CCS with a 3:52.04 time.
Daniel Sikiric's (Leland '96) All-Time CCS record in the 1500 (3:54.78), run at the West Valley Relays, was broken by Justin Pretre (Menlo) with a 3:54.37 win at the California Winter Championships.
Take a look at the all time sprint marks (100/200) for Texas HS.
Back in the day (1960's) when the Invite's Head Timer, Snort Winstead, would smoke a pipe at the finish line.
Just under 24 minutes this is a great video on "Numero Uno" (Peter Snell) who some believe was the greatest middle distance runner of all time - watch the video to understand why. Amazing.
Way back in the day (1964-1965) when the Redwood City Tribune selected Athlete Of The Week, would do a "caricature" of said Athlete and then hang in the newspaper's office for a season - pretty cool.
SCVAL Pre-season Track Meeting: is Monday, January 23rd at 4:00pm at Santa Clara Admin building (same as usual). If you have anything you would like to put on the agenda, please email Julie by Friday, January 20.
