Didn’t Kurt Roessler Jump 50-0 ft in the Triple Jump AAA Boys at PIAA Champs in 1978 and Hold Record until 1992?
Roessler did jump 50-0 in ’78, but it was never listed in the PIAA program as the AAA triple jump record. In that case, it was either wind-aided, which would disallow the record, or an error.
I don’t have any information right at the moment on whether it was wind-aided, but I’ll certainly check.

Rod, You missed it,somehow, Kurt Roessler’s record was listed in all the programs I have. He held record from 1978-1992 for AAA Boy’s in the Triple Jump. I have always enjoyed your work, Thanks!
Of course, relays do not count in the “multiple state champ” category , but for what its worth, Greenville(d10) were state champs in ’82(setting a AA record that stood for 22 yrs). In ’83 the same 4 were champs again while helping to capture the AA team title. With that Greenville’s Tim manes would have been a 4 time champ( 2 open 800 and 2 4×800 with state records in both)
I missed the Kurt Roessler record because I am apparently incapable of reading my own research. You were right: I missed it. Duh!
The only reason I haven’t counted relay members in the multiple champions is because I don’t have all of the relay team names yet. Once I get those, then they’ll be added.
Rod, Great if you can include relays. I figured that may be a nearly impossible task. With any team that repeats as a relay champ, seems there would be a fair amount of turn over from one year to the next. As a HS sports junkie, I appreciate this type info…..thanks!
News services incorrectly reported that a Frank Ackerman of South Williamsport won the 1962 Class B 220 in a State Record of 21.8. In fact, Jack Wright of Exeter was awarded the win in 21.8. The irony for me is that I finished 3/4 of a yard in front of Jack and recorded 21.7, which was altered on the finish card to 22.7, the 2nd slowest time in the final (and still, I was awarded 2nd place–a nice trick!). Officials said the finish camera was not working, and my coach choose not to protest because of long-standing difficulties with District 3 and State Meet officials. One bone of contention, I believe, went back to the award results for Tony Baker of Camp Hill in the 1956 Class B 100 Final, a circumstance similar to my experience. I recall, additionally, an announcement that a previous 21.8 recorded at the State Meet was wind aided. In any case, Jack Wright was the official winner in 1962 with a new State Record of 21.8.
Jeff Brown from Grove City who won 3 open Golds in 1979 also won an open Gold in 1978 for Lower Merion. He should be listed as having 4 open Golds.
This is the first I’ve heard of your unfortunate finish line experience, and the track old-timers never miss a chance to tell the old stories. That could not have been pleasant; my condolences, albeit a half-century late.
Just the same, I very much appreciate the information and will make the appropriate correction. Thanks very much for taking the time to write,
Stu, I have you listed as the 1987 AAA high jump champ in both the field events listing and the all-time champions.
