BILL MANN - 1959

On May 2, 1959, I ran 14.00 seconds in the same event in Mount Pleasant to establish the TCHS record that Alex Liggett bettered. 

As wonderful as his performance was, it did not break a "65-year-old standard," as reported in the Record-Eagle.  If my arithmetic is correct, the record he broke was only 56 years old.  It was probably one of the oldest records in the State of Michigan - or anywhere.  Alex deserves my highest praise. 

Bill Mann

TRAVERSE CITY - School records were not safe at Friday's Traverse City West Invitational track and field meet.

Three of them were broken, including Traverse City Central's 56-year-old standard in the boys 110-meter hurdles, when Alex Liggett ran a 13.84 to erase Bill Mann's mark of 14 seconds in the event, set back in 1959. Liggett also broke Joel Gaff's record in the 300 hurdles by one hundredth of a second with a time of 38.47.

"It's been my goal since freshman year," Liggett said of breaking the 110 hurdles record. "I was so pumped. I'm pretty sure that's why I broke the other school record (in the 300). I was pumped full of adrenaline."
