A sports hall of famer in Newfoundland and Labrador has died.
Dave “Snowy” Carroll, who is in the Newfoundland Labrador Athletics Hall of Fame, passed away on the weekend. Carroll was one of the province’s fastest runners.
According to the NL Athletics Association, Carroll held a record of between 90 and 100 wins in separate races, while losing only four times.
The NLAA says his records of 9.7 seconds for the 100-yard dash, 22.6 seconds for the 220-yard dash and 49.5 seconds for the 440-yard run remain unmatched in this province for nearly 30 years.
Snowy Caroll was 74.
