Working on what will be a multiple hundreds of pages compilation of the Mason Boys' T&F district meet history this year in honor of what will be the 100th anniversary of that meet in 2023.

Andy Scramm won the individual cross country title in 61 for Deer Park. I imagine he scored most of their points at the track district meet.

Andy scored 10 of Deer Park's 14 points. Schramm won the mile with a new district record of 4:31.7, and then placed 2nd in the 880. Schramm would go onto set the all-time Ohio mile record in 1962 with his 4:18.0 at the Miami Invite.

Schramm went on to run for Miami U. (if my memory serves me correctly), then became a minister. Unfortunately, he passed away at the relatively young age of 61 in 2005.

Here is are the 1961 results (in process):

He followed that up with an individual state title in the mile in 1962 in a state meet record time of 4:21.7
Indeed he did...despite having lane one some 2" under water in spots on the old cinder track in the Shoe. The rain was atrocious, I've read. Schramm was aiming and in shape for a 4:15, but conditions didn't allow for it :(
