It was a record that stood for 40 years.
But it stands no more.
Last Friday night, Lehighton's Kyle Hunter picked apart Marian's secondary in leading his team to a 35-13 victory.
The senior quarterback completed 10-of-13 passes for 296 yards and a touchdown.
While no one knew it at the time, a little research discovered that his performance set a school record for most passing yards in a game.
The 296 bettered the mark of 285 set by Terry Wogenrich on Oct. 12, 1968 against East Stroudsburg.
