Source for Hammer: Bob Gourley. Mr. Gourley tracks and verifies national hammer throw marks.
Source for 4x 400 relay: The 1967 Daily Olympian state track and field results and the Olympia High School old track and field school record reader board. The article is dated May 29, 1967.
Marks converted from yards to meters using USA Track and Field accepted conversion standards.
The hammer is not an official WIAA event. However, the hammer is thrown at a separate state championship meet in Washington State.
Records count if they are set before an athlete starts their freshman year in college. For example, if the athlete breaks a record the summer directly following high school graduation in June, the record counts.
