With the help of Doug Kilpatrick, Jonathan Lyau, Rodney Yap and the rest of the track and field community in Hawaii, the Star-Advertiser has tried to compile lists of each event winner in the history of the HHSAA track and field championships. We will be releasing them one at a time over the next few days, when we finish we will put them all on one page with links to individual pages. Inevitably, some information is incomplete, especially concerning individuals on relay teams. If you have any corrections, please comment at the bottom of this post and I will get to them as soon as I can. Enjoy.

    I know Neal Narmore (Nanakuli) won the OIA Championships with a 6’5 1977, Didn’t he also jump 6’6″ in the states?

    The newspapers reported this finish in 1977: Robert Rosa, McKinley, 6-4; Chris Searl, Punahou, 6-2; Willie Baker, Aiea, 6-2; Steve Pratt, Kaiser, 6-2; Robbie Spencer, St. Anthony, 6-0.

    The only mention of Narmore that year was a fifth in the triple jump.

    Ferd Lewis wrote: Robert Rosa of McKinley upset Punahou’s almost automatic high jump winner, Chris Searl.

    So I don’t think it would be a mistake in typing in the results, which happens.

    Mahalo, for sharing..thru the years, I’ve tried looking for things like this..I was surprise to find this..you probably recognized my name right from the start..lol..I’m the Co- High Jump Champion 1961..Hilo 6-2 with Steve Booth..I’m sure you’re aware, that this was before the
    ” Fosbury Flop “..the Ole ” Western Roll ” as I recall…and the Landing Pit was filled with Saw
    Dust…Hard on the Elbows…I was 5′ 6 ” 1/2 ..135 lbs… Also played Var-Basketball ..My HS
    Track Season started late..because of State Basketball Tour..I believe we ended in 4th place..
    I almost talked myself, into not doing Track/field …I felt heavy and with the late start ??? but,
    I thought I’d play it by ear…My 10th and 11th school years, I lived in Kona..Played Basketball,
    and ran Track for Konawaena HS..Won most of HJ events..did well in the 180 low Hurdles..
    Won the Var. HJ at the Lahainaluna Invitational …my Junior yr..I believe, I would have had a
    chance to win the State title’s in 59/60..but, for some reason was never invited ..
    I’m still involved with sports..I just retired from Officiating College Soccer…Still doing HS…
    I also Officiate HS. Lacrosse, Basketball, and Volleyball…try to stay in the best shape, I can
    be…I live in Bay Village,Ohio…western suburbs of Cleveland…Again, Mahalo for doing this..
    it brought back some good memorie’s….Did you guy’s find any picture’s ( Archives ) ?
    Thank you, Roger

    Peters not only jumped 6`8″ in the state, but also legitimate jumps at 6`10″ at Radford high, and 6`11″ at Punaho

    Sorry Punahou, for the misspelling. As for Peters jumping 6`10, and 6`11″, its unfortunate that he didnt jump that in the state meet. I also believe that he had a 6`10″ jump at a Maui invitational. Anyways, it is what it is. God Bless to all
