1982 Girls 4 x 800 Relay Team

Kimberli Banker, Beth Buckley Callahan, Veronica Mills, and Michelle Tauzel Keller

The Burnt Hills-Ballston Lake 1982 Girls 4 X 800 Relay team won the New York State Outdoor Track Championship Meet with a time of 9:15.1. The time was a New York State Meet record, a record that lasted for seven years, and the fourth fastest time in New York State history at the time. It was also the third fastest time in the United States that year, and ranked 16th on the All-Time National Schoolgirl list. The State Meet was held at Cornell University, and was the first New York State title for a BH-BL team. The same four girls also won the Section II State Qualifier Meet, and broke the school record, which held for 13 years.
