    3:05.69 Long Island Alliance UND 3 Villanova PA 30-May-81 ?Daley/???, Brady Crain/USA, Neville Hodge/ISV, Ed Yearwood/USA
    3:05.74 Concerned Athletes USA 4 Villanova PA 30-May-81 Ricky Flowers, Randy Williams, ? Harris, Elliot Tabron
    3:06.50 Univ California(Irvine) USA 4 s1 NCAA Baton Rouge LA 06-Jun-81 Tony Wells, ? Kidd, Bill Dorvall, Eddie Carey
    Also.
    was the 1981 PAC 10 run over 4x400metres and not 4x440yards. Its shown as yards in Svetove Tabulky but PAC 10 web lists show metres for all 1981 track events.
    Some help would be much appreciated.

    The UC Irvine athlete was Carlyle Kidd, according to a news report in here...

    The "Harris" running for Concerned Athletes was probably Ronnie Harris - someone with that name ran 440 for Concerned Athletes in Idaho in early 1981.

    a decade or so back, the Pac-10 (now 12) "converted" all yard marks to meters.

    That may be the Panamanian Hector Daley.

    Thanks for all the info guys. The last part of my question has yet to be resolved(pac 10 records for 1981 show all track events as metric). I am aware that some tracks transitioned from imperial to metric could the Cobb track at Angell Field be one such.
    Last, these teams have no info as to members. Help again is so much appreciated.
    Concerned Athletes 2 TB CI Knoxville TN 23-May-81
    USOC South USA 2 USOC SF Syracuse NY 27-Jul-81
    USOC West USA 3 USOC SF Syracuse NY 27-Jul-81
    Maccabi TC ??? 2 Mt SAC R Walnut CA 26-Apr-81
    Anyone who wants a copy of the 1981 4x400m lists is more than welcome to have an excel file emailed to them when the list is completed.

    Cobb Track didn't exist in '81; Angell Field had an ancient dirt oval.


    Stanford meets of that era were contested in Stanford Stadium, which was 440y.
