I know that Mike Kennedy is the resident expert on HS girls track and may be the only one that can answer this obscure performance that I'm researching, but his contact info at the T&FN website here
) is not current and doesn't work.
A mark of 46' 03 for Karen Nitsch of Perry Meridian HS in Indiana appeared in the November 1981 issue of TF&N, but I have no clue where that 46' 3 mark was made. I suspect it was made late in the high school season because the mark did not appear in any other T&FN issues that year. I'm interested in getting more information on this performance because I compile a list of All-Time Top 25 Indiana HS Performances here
and the above mark exceeds the one I currently have for Nitsch on that list.
Thanks to anyone that can help shed light on that mark or knows how I can contact Mike Kennedy directly!
