1961 Mile Relay Team
Florian Stolfi, Luis Carreras
Ken Wieand, Dave Cameron
The 1961 mile relay team set a school record that lasted for ten years. Running in the Flyin' L relays in Ft. Lauderdale, Ken Wieand ran the first leg in 51.8 seconds, Luis Carrerras (who sadly passed away in 2017) followed with a 52.5 leg, Dave Cameron sprinted the third quarter mile in 52.8 and Florian Stolfi ran the anchor leg in 49.9 seconds. The total time of 3:27.0 was faster than the state champions in two of the three Florida classifications that year as class A champ Winter Park High ran a time of 3:27.2 and class B winner Tallahassee Florida High ran a 3:33.5. Stolfi's final leg time was better than any of the members of the Miami News mile relay all-star team.
