1914 IHSAA BOYS STATE T&F MEET

Dear Readers,

I received the following inquiry over on our facebook page from one, Mike Slaubaugh. It is reprinted here with his permission in an effort to help locate a lost bit of Oaklandon related information:

Being from over 100 years ago, this is likely lost to history, but worth a try here. I am the webmaster of a site devoted to the history of the Indiana State High School Track & Field Champions. I am currently trying to track down the year of graduation for all medalists from 1904 to present. However, I have reached a dead end with the only medalist from Oaklandon HS:

Weaver (first name unknown), 3rd in the hurdles at the state meet held on May 16, 1914

A search of online yearbooks and newspaper archives have not yielded Weaver's first name or year of graduation (he may or may not have been a senior the year he medaled).

Any help with that information for Weaver is appreciated!

If you can shed any light on this mystery please visit Mr. Slaubaugh's very interesting website: https://users.pfw.edu/slaubau/instatemeethistory.htm you may contact him via the email provided there.
