    I believe my son, Jim Buser, still holds the record for the 880 yd. run in 1:56.4 set in April, 1980. Even when the time is compared to the time run in 800 meters, it still may be the best. Please research this and let me know. It used to be posted at the Yukon Highschool but may have been lost in the move to the new facility. I have the story in the Yukon Review on April 27, 1980 to verify this time.
    Thanks,
    Carolyn Buser
