Best 20K Walk By Indiana HS Alum Woman?

Postby Neuman » Tue Aug 13, 2013 9:32 pm

I'm attempting to expand the Indiana HS Alum records I maintain here (for men) and here to include the Olympic distance walks. I believe I correctly have the best for the men's 20K and 50K:

20000 Walk - 1:22:31 - John Nunn (Evansville Harrison HS '96) - US Army - Birstonas, LTU '04
50000 Walk - 4:03:28 - John Nunn (Evansville Harrison HS '96) - US Army - London Olympics, ENG '12

However, the best I found on the women's side is the following and I'm not sure if it's even the fastest by Sonntag or whether another alum has walked faster.

20000 Walk - 1:46:23 - Lisa Sonntag (Crown Point HS '82) - Unattached - National Invitational, VA '00

So the question for the walk experts is does anybody know if Sonntag or another Indiana HS alum has walked faster?

Wow, thanks for maintaining this, I had no idea that Jelks was from Indiana, and a West Side alum. Thanks!

Lisa Sonntag is probably your fastest IN native. Melissa Moeller was a fairly successful Junior from 05-07, but never did any real racing at the 20km distance. There has been no one of any acclaim since then. Pretty sad that USATF HQ are in Indy & there is no support for the event there (not surprising based upon the status quo attitude)
