Atkins High School won the All-Forsyth meet for the second straight year, receiving the Twin City Kiwanis Club trophy. The Camels were coached by Robert Moore.

Most Valuable Athlete: Jimmy Caldwell (Atkins).

Three meet records fell, one was tied, and records were set in two new events (2-mile and Sprint Medley).

North's Charles Sykes destroyed the LJ record with a leap of 22-6, also a new all-time city record. The previous meet record was 21-9 set the previous year by Reynolds' Larry Reeves. Sykes had broken the city record a week earlier with a 22-4.75.

Reynolds' George Phillips took five seconds off the meet record for the Mile, with a 4:29.0, bettering the record of 4:34 set the previous year by North's Frank Carroll.

Atkins broke the Mile Relay record they had set the previous year, taking 1.9 seconds off their record with a 3:28.0.

The anchor of Atkins' Mile Relay, Willis Miller, earlier tied the meet record of 15.2 in the High Hurdles set the previous year by Atkins' Alfred Adams.

The meet was originally scheduled for Thursday night 4/23, but was postponed by a thunderstorm to Friday. The high jump was the only event completed Thursday.

The meet was sponsored by the North Forsyth HS Key Club, and the Twin City Kiwanis club.
