U.S. high school track and field national records

 
The United States high school track and field national records listed below are as maintained by the National Federation of State High School Associations (NFSH). For More information about the NFSH, visit their website at www.nfhs.org.

Interesting High School Track and Field Records Notes:

  1. The oldest national high school event record still untied or broken is the girls long jump: In 1976, Kathy McMillan (Raeford Hoke County, North Carolina) leaped 22’-1 ¾”.
  2. The boys and girls national shot put records were held by a father and daughter tandem: In 1979, Dallas, Texas Jefferson High School’s Michael Carter (who went on to become an Olympic Silver Medalist and all-pro defensive tackle for the San Francisco 49ers) heaved the shot an astonishing distance of 77’-00″. But that’s not the end to this tale. Later that year, Michael Carter threw 81’-3 1/2” at the Golden West Invitational, a track and field meet held in Sacramento, CA featuring the top high school athletes in the country. The NFSH has not recognized the throw as a record because it did not occur at NFSH sanctioned meet. However, most sports observers do recognize the throw as being a high school record. Consequently, many sports authorities and pundits credit Carter’s 81′-3 1/2″ shot put throw as being one of the greatest sports feats in history. Twenty-four years later (2003), his daughter, Michelle Carter (Red Oak, Texas), set the U.S. girls national record with a throw of 54’-10”. Michelle’s mark was demolished in 2017 by New Jersey’s Alyssa Wilson, who heaved a record-shattering toss of 57′ -1 1/4″.
  3. Shalonda Solomon, Shana Solomon and Jasmine Lee of Long Beach Polly HS are members of three national record-setting relay teams in the Girls 200, 400 and 1600 relays. All three relay records were set in 2004.
