Bannister's feat not unprecedented...

But still amazing. After last weekend's state finals we wondered aloud whether Albion's Amelia Bannister (right) was the first ever to win victories in the 100 and 800 in the same state finals, clocking 12.21 and 2:16.42. Reader Rob Lutz, who taught at Camden-Frontier High, remembers that a student there pulled off the double in 1989 at the Class D finals at Hillsdale. It was Jackie Clark, who clocked hand times of 12.3 and 2:19.5. Anyone remember another?
