In 1961 Scott Knox's time of 49.2 for the 440 yard dash was the best in the county. Coach Sunday Durland always had great quarter milers and 1961 was a banner year with Knox combining with Mike Turner, Charles Roberts and Bob Concannon
to set the still-standing 4x400 meter relay record of 3:21.1c.

The record above was taken from a list of school records prepared by Sunday Durland in 1955. There appear to be gaps in the records from 1955 to 1994 so if anyone has information on records set during this period
