In celebration of the 100th state track meet May 28-29 at Cessna Stadium, high school track coaches across Kansas were asked for their lists of top 10 meet moments. They can be found in "A Century of Milestones," a KSHSAA book about the history of the meet, at the state meet. Look later this week for the final top moment.
2. Clint Johnson doubles up (1980)
Shawnee Mission South's Clint Johnson wasn't a prototypical shot put and discus thrower. He entered the ring at the 1980 state meet at 6-foot-4, 195 pounds.
He left the ring with state records in both events. Neither his shot put record of 69 feet, 1 1/4 inches, or his discus throw of 200 feet, 3 inches, have since been topped. In '80, those marks were the best in the nation.
