This isn't about the indoor meet, but the best double I witnessed at the State Meet(other than Franek's triple) was in 1991.

Darrell Hughes of Westland won the DI 1600 in 4:11 on a hot day and returned in the 800 to trail the field with a 57.7 on the first lap only to kick them all under in 1:52.7 or so. I remember feeling sorry for him that his coach was making him run the 800 after such a great 16oo so I timed him myself, hoping he would finish. after the quarter he looked done, so I rooted for him to catch someone....but then he reeled them ALL in. I kept his splits on my watch for about a week afterward to show people what I saw... 57.7 - 55.0.

May not be as good as McAfee (I'm not That old) and some others, but I witnessed it. and was a young coach then and it kept me coming back.
