Question re: H.S. track results in 1958.

Postby lovetorun » Tue Apr 30, 2013 9:58 pm

I'm looking for the results of the Chaffey , California Invitational H.S. meet back in 1958. Anyone out there have a link or know where I could go to find the meet results?

My brother placed 3rd or 4th in the 880 and i remember that he broke 2:00.0 but he says no...so we have a bet. :)

880 (2nd race): 1. Taylor (Excelsior) 1:59.2; 2. Maize (El Cajon); 3. Weaver (Tustin).

dj...thanks for the info...I wonder if you could see who was 4th in that second race...should be my brother John Cannon from Tustin. Our bet was re:whether he broke 2:00 or not...any chance for info on place times?

Sorry, I have nothing beyond what I could find in the LA Times.

ltr, if you're still in southern CA, you may want to take a trip to the LA84 Foundation sports library in LA. http://www.la84foundation.org/4sl/over_frmst.htm

They also can do research for you (for a fee).

Or, they may be able to point you in the right direction.

I guess it depends on how bad you want the info. :)
