Using the strong selectivity of the A(p,-)A+1 reaction for population of high-spin, two-particle one-hole final states, we have located and identified several candidates for high-spin states in the sd-shell nuclei Na20, Al24, Si26, P28, S30, and S31. The spin assignments are based on both the strong population of the states and the stretched-state signature of the analyzing power angular distributions.
