"One thing puzzled me. Mike Bosworth was not among Kirkwood's top 7 runners that day, according to the writeup. But I know ('cause I have both yearbooks) that he lettered in Cross Country in both his junior and senior years; and I am pretty sure my recollection is true, that he sometimes was among the top 5 Kirkwood finishers in races during that final (fall of 1964) season.
