Current USA High School Boys Track and Field Records Through July 2009 – Part 1

Mar 18 2022 Published by dayat under Uncategorized

Here are the current USA High School Boys Track and Field Records through July 2009. This list gives every high school runner, jumper and thrower an idea of what it takes to become a world-class athlete at the prep level.

Some of these record-holders have just completed their senior season and are likely headed for college competition somewhere. They include hurdler Reggie Wyatt, long jumper Marquis Goodwin, discus thrower Mason Finley, hammer thrower Conor McCullough, decathlon athlete Curtis Beach, and relay speedsters Andrew Hendrix and brother Anthony Hendrix.

The list of names from the past and their performances is amazing, and they have become household names in the track and field community worldwide. They include Alan Webb, Galen Rupp, and more recently German Fernandez.
