O'Neil, Tulley, and Coyle recorded their marks in marathon races.
Most of the 20 mile times were recorded at the annual "Pepsi 20" which was held for many years after the section finals in cross country.
There was no state meet in those years so many high schoolers converged on Courtland to test themselves over the flat and fast course.
Tom O'Neil ran a 1:49:29 to set the high school course record in November of 1976.
Hugh Miller recorded his 1:55:29 as a freshman. He was approximately 5'3' and 90 lbs. at the time.

Tom O'Neil's 5 mile splits: 27:04, 54:25, 1:21:14, 1:49:14, 2:17:41. O'Neil's mark is still the fourth fastest high school marathon ever. It came in the annual Burlingame Marathon. He had run a 2:29:01 his junior year, and was aiming for the national record his senior year. He missed it by only 45 seconds.
In the same race, Tom's 51-year old father ran a 2:35, and the O'Neil's laid claim to a "father-son world record", which earned them a "Faces in the Crowd" spot in Sports Illustrated.
Tulley ran his time trying to qualify for the Olympic trials in a race at Sunset Whitney Ranch in Rocklin. The trials standard in 1972 was 2:30.
Chris Little's marathon was run in hilly San Francisco, the summer of his sophomore year.
Hugh Miller's time was a national freshman record and world 14-year old record. His earlier 1:55 for 20 miles indicated sub-2:40 potential, but the marathon in Madera was plagued with very strong winds. Miller got press anyway, including a "Faces in the Crowd" in Sports Illustrated.
