Janis was a third Vetter, and to add another twist to all this (since I don't know the fourth sister), Debbie/Diane/Janis combined with whom to set the only 4 x 880 World Record that the IAAF ever ratified? I'm assuming she was an Ohioan as well.
I thought 1 & 25 would be the hardest and DoubleRbar got them in the first post! 2. is Bacheler 13. discus was his 2nd best event (I think). 15. Wabash and Earlham 16. Town (village?) is on the Ohio River
All other answers are correct. I don't know the 4th member of the 4x880, but I may call Steve Price for the answer.
3. 1972 400H 5. DD 6. Bill Schnier also coached there. 11. DP 16. _ _ _ _ville 17. Billy Joe 20. He was "money".
18, Thanksgiving Day Race also called Elks Race used to start in Fort Thomas, KY run downhill and across the Ohio River, then uphill to the Elks Lodge finish line. Think it used to be a 7miler, now a 10k. Berwick, PA's 9mi Thanksgiving Day Run for the Diamonds is also over 100 yrs. old.
