I disbelieve!(?) Their outdoor prep lists run Jan 1 - Dec 31, does it not?
Indoor lists, however, typically do start Dec 1.
Later . . . I just went for a 3-mile run (ugh!) and it jarred some thoughts loose in my brain . . .
A graduated senior can no longer be carried on HS lists as of 9/1, and an underclassman becomes the next grade higher on 9/1, but I still can't believe that if a junior were to set a HS record on 9/2, s/he wouldn't be listed on the year-end lists (esp. Jack Shepard's Annual (which, by the way, I just ordered today)) as the list leader. So a 9/2 mark would disappear until the NEXT year's lists??!!
