I had looked at your site before for track and field. I am a native of Bellwood-Antis (Dist 6) a strong T & F area. I was very interested and impressed with the compilation of state meet winners in each event back to the 1940’s. I wanted to verify that Ron Paul ( presidential candidate and Gettysburg College grad) won the 220 in 1952 for a Pittsburgh area school as stated on wickipedia. I cannot access any of that information today. Thanks. Ron Shunk–Gettysburg
First, I’ll get my track pages back up ASAP. My webmaster did some work on my site, and apparently I have to re-load those pages.
Second, there is indeed a Ron Paul from Dormont who won the PIAA Class A 220-yard dash in 23.5 seconds. Same Ron Paul? Well, I don’t know that for certain, but it does add up, doesn’t it?
Rod–I just found your response to my earlier question. I did a google on Ron Paul, Dormont and found an Oct 11, 2011 article from the Pittsburgh Post Gazette about Paul’s roots having been in suburban Pittsburgh, Green Tree and Dormont. He graduated from Dormont HS in 1953. The article says that he was the state 220 champion. Also, there are/were a few Bellwood-Antis guys who were PIAA champs on your lists over the years in the old Class B then AA. Guys I knew personally were Barry Cassidy, discus in the 50’s and Ted Miller, javelin, 1963 I think. Don Garman won the discus in the 40’s.
Thanks for your reply.–Ron
I got the date wrong–it was Oct. 23, 2011 for the PG article
