Ohio MileSplit Article on Paige Floriea

Nice article (https://oh.milesplit.com/articles/25...ge=3&preview=1) about a very talented long jumper. She jumped just over 20' wind-aided last year as a freshmen...wind or not, a very good jump. She's already jumped 18' 11" this year indoors.

The issue with the article that I had, which I've already written to the author of the article, is that Ohio Milesplit presents her as being #4 on the All-Time Ohio Indoor list for girls' long jumpers. Unfortunately, that just isn't so. Failed in consideration is the fact that Milesplit, Dyestat, or any of the other services out there only contain fractions, albeit VERY IMPORTANT fractions, of track & field history. A very large amount of track & field was happening quite well prior to 2000, and extremely little of that has carried forward into today's archiving processes. The late, great, Craig Whitmore, did a whole lot of that archiving process, and could reasonably referred to as the Godfather of Ohio HS track & field history. It's a shame he isn't here anymore to enjoy what is now available.

Back to the article...I KNEW that young miss Floriea certainly wasn't #4, but I didn't know where she might stand. After an afternoon/evening of compiling some research, much of which is available online, but some of which I've carried over from both Craig Whitmore's archives and my own archive of Track & Field News and other resources, I currently have Paige Floriea's 18' 11" as #8 on the all-time list. While certainly not complete, below are the top 25 as I have of this writing. As I said, this is only after about 8 hours of research and I present it here for all to enjoy. A more formal documentation akin to my other work will be posted at a later date.

21 18' 6" Amber SMITH Cleveland Collinwood 11 21 Mar 2009
21 18' 6" Hope PURCELL Lancaster 12 3 Mar 2018
23 18' 5 " Chanda WILLIAMS Springfield 13 Mar 1988
24 18' 5 " Kaila BARBER Middleburg Heights Midpark 12 19 Mar 2011
25 18' 5 " Bethany McGRAW Toledo Christian 10 21 Feb 2004

NOTE: The mark of 19' 2" by Laura Leudemand of the Ohio TC comes from Craig Whitmore's Ohio Track & Field issue of 9 April 1990, page 6, which listed the all-time Ohio indoor & outdoor records at that point in time according to Mr. Whitmore. I personally do not have corroborating information on that performance. On all others listed, I do.

I would like to know that Leudemand was enrolled at an Ohio high school at the time of the performance before putting her on any high school rankings.

I'm working on that. As I mentioned earlier, that's Whitmore's contribution. I'm working to track down both her affiliation (HS) and the results of the '65 Mason Dixon games. Neither is the easiest to get.

UPDATE

In case no one has noticed, young Ms. Floriea has long jumped over 19' twice in the last 7 days. She jumped 19' 2" last Sunday, and 19' 1 1/4" on Friday...both performances at SPIRE's facility. She also ran a 7.69 yesterday, and a non-legal 24.71 on the over-sized oval at SPIRE. Her 19' 2" bumps her up 2 spots to a tie for 5th on the all-time indoor list (as it now stands). From my records, that is also an all-time Ohio sophomore record, moving her ahead of Centerville's Laura Kirkham (18' 11 1/4") from back in 1983.

I've updated the list above for new information.
