These records were from 1977 - 1999, however, it was brought to our attention that we have a record setter in 1966.  Alumni, if you have any records to record, please let us know.  If you have any newspaper articles, please send them to us.  We will do our best to get them posted on the site.  The new record is Franklin Thompson, Strike Outs in a Game.  This replaces Don Deloach's 16 in 1977
