Records, it's been said, are meant to be broken. And when the city high school track and field meet plays out a week from today, some records are bound to fall. But there are some records within the local track circle that have been standing a long time. One, in fact, was set in 1964, another in 1967. Maybe they just weren't meant to be broken. Some of the records that the restless hands of time have yet to catch up with include:
