1. In 1939, Dolores Frieze of Garfield (Los Angeles), threw 27 consecutive strikeouts in a game. It took 68 years for another softball pitcher to come close as Jenna Ignowski had 23 consecutive strikeouts in a game for Niles, Mich., in 2007.

2. In 1976, Kathy McMillan of Hoke County (Raeford, N.C.) long jumped 22 feet, 3 inches at the Jack in the Box Invitational in Westwood, Calif. Even though she won a silver medal in the 1976 Olympics in Montreal, she couldn't match her high school record. If she had, she would have won gold.
