With all due respect to Sean Jefferson\'s great 8:59.03, Brett Hoffman ran 8:53.1 for 2 miles at the 4A State meet in 1977. Since 2 miles is roughly 3218 meters, clearly Hoffman ran the fastest ever at State. (It converts to 8:50.1 for 3200, using the Track and Field News .9942 multiplier.)
It would be great to see one of this year\'s super 2A runners who are returning (or anyone else) beat the record, but I urge them to set their sights on the real record. And it would be great if someone would invite Brett Hoffman to the meet since I suspect lots of today\'s stars would like to meet Florida\'s fastest (so far) ever.

Here is the all-time 3200 list as we have it:

http://www.milesplit.com/performances.php?season=Outdoor&level=HS&year=&event=3200m&sex=m&class=&place=FL&division=

I think we are complete, or at least nearly so, through 9:10. After that there are some missing and after 9:15 or 9:20 there are a ton missing that will probably never be filled in but we at least want to get all of them in there from the 70s 80s and 90s that were sub 9:20 so if you have more help us fill them in.

A correct should be made.

Herb Willis should be changed to Herb Wills of Leon HS.

Mr. Pietsch,

Do you by any chance have a 10-deep list for FL HS all-time, all events? I\'d love to get my hands on that. The one at this site only has marks for the last couple of years. I have the girls PV, but that was easy, having started in 1996.

These are all two mile times from their State Meets.

The girls list is missing a lot of performances too,

My initial post concerned the STATE MEET record, not the all-time fastest time. Brett Hoffman has both - the 8:53.0 2 mile he ran at the old Int\'l Prep meet (8:50.0 3200, using the standard Track and Field News .9942 multiplier), and the 8:53.1 2 mile he ran at the \'77 State Meet (8:50.1 converted).
Jason\'s list (see his link above) puzzles me, as I told him in a separate e-mail, since it omits some of the guys on the list jsully posted on this website years ago - and which I thought I remembered Jason using. It also has slightly different conversions than Jason has - and jsully\'s seems the most consistent with the Track and Field News standards.
Finally, in response to statguy - no, I don\'t have in depth all-time lists. Wish I did. I hope some real stat person (I\'m just an amateur) will compile such lists. I\'ll be glad to help where I can. It would be great to (1)give the greats of the past due recogntion, and (2)give current athletes accurate goals to shoot for.
