• What Indians Hold The Records In Comanche, Texas?

    Last year when I began to hear people began reminding me about some of the old Comanche, Texas’ track records, I did wonder why the sudden interest, but honestly I was so buried in Texans United that I never asked anyone why people were resurrecting the past. You’d think that as many times as I’ve walked by the trophy case on my way to watch Indian and Maiden basketball, I would have seen the framed records that Coach Jeff Roemisch hung there on the wall, but I didn’t.

    A year later, I finally looked up while entering the gym and lo and behold there hang the best times of Comanche County tracksters. Today, I am delighted to share those with you.  Our thanks goes out to Danny Armstrong for being the keeper of the records for all of these years. The records that were set in yards have been converted to meters.

      I remember when 5 of these records were set. Those were some really fun times.

      This is Brian Johnson, the holder of the 400 metter record. :-). How are you? I was wondering if you had any record of the time we went to freeport Texas with baseball and set all the records down there. I know we played the most games in a 24 hour period. I can’t find any articles on it. Donald first was our coach and the team was named the braves. I believe we called it pony league. Hope all is well.
