Hall of Fame Inductee - Harold Krull

Harold Krull was a key ingredient in Quincy High's Varsity track team in 1941. As a junior, Krull was an outstanding sprinter, capturing high honors in most every event he entered. And while he was good as a junior, Krull was just getting warmed up. At the Geneseo relays his senior year, Krull won first place in the 100 yard dash and was a member of first place winning 880 and mile relay teams. He and his teammates Lee Haney, Jack Flacks and Ken Seiz captured the 880 and mile relays at Galva. At the Ft. Madison relays, Krull set a new record in the 220, and again he and his teammates dominated, by winning first place and setting new records in the 440 & 880 Medley, and mile relays. The Quincy High team continued to roll, placing first in the State District Track Meet. There, Krull placed first in the 100 yard dash, turned in another first place finish in the 220 and still another in the 880 relay. At the State Finals held in Champaign, Krull won a gold medal in the 220 and as a member of the 880 relay team. He finished second in the 100 yard dash. As a team, Quincy finished second, losing the state title by just one point. After graduation, Krull attended Kirksville Osteopathic College and later Iowa State University. Krull served in the Army during World War II. Afterwards, he returned home and attended Quincy College. Harold Krull passed away in 1971.
