You are correct. I read somewhere that he ran 1:58.2 for 880 yards which is about 1:57.5 for 800 meters. He was also a team member of a 3:19 mile relay team.

More trivia questions on the way.

It was indeed an interesting period of time to be part of the Carlmont team... and the comment about Robin is correct.

I was with the team from 72-76. (1:59 for 880 yards)
