Results from the Bellevue Invite today: The senior from Perkins won the girls' discus with a throw of 117-02. The top four throwers all hit 100' or longer. The senior from Perkins won the boys' discus with a throw of 148-07. His teammate (a junior) took second with 141-05. The third place finisher threw 126-05.
In shot put: The sophomore from Huron won the girls' shot put with 39-01. The next girl threw 32-05. The same boy from Perkins (the senior that won discus) took the shot with 53-03. The second place finish was 45-06. All placers were 43' or longer.
He is a very good thrower - I never know about posting names on here, so I didn't - as I was a spectator and don't personally know the kid. The boy from Sandusky St. Mary's is winning just about every invite in which he participates. 48 - 50 in the shot and 150's in the discus. Not bad for a little school.
I don't think posting a name for any kid who is excelling would ever be an issue, especially when talking in regards to meet placement which is reported on by the local papers as well. We just don't want people taking cheap shots at a kid. That's not OK, because after all, they are still kids. However, if we want to take cheap shots at each other......
Norwalk is at the Fremont Invitational tomorrow. Some very good throwers will be present. Interesting to see how kids are throwing at this point in the year. My daughter has had a rough couple weeks with fouling, so she's hoping to turn it around tomorrow. She needs to get those hips snapped around. Fingers crossed!
The following is taken from the Sandusky Register.
Ehrnsberger broke both NOL throws records and set a new personal-best length of 181-feet-3 inches in the discus.
“Going into that discus competition, it was a real muddy throwing area, so I couldn’t get a good grip on the disc at all. Every time I threw it, I didn’t have any spin on it at all, and I was only getting low 160s,” Ehrnsberger said. “Then finally, in the finals, my first throw was a real good throw but it was outside the line, so it was a foul. Second throw was when I posted that 181-3. Everything just felt good. I had a nice, smooth release … everything just went perfectly.”
He won the shot put with a 59'5". It wasn’t quite his personal-best toss, which was a 62-3 at the Jim Hauser Pirate Relays a week earlier on May 6 — but for the weather, he wasn’t complaining.
“The ring was wet and my throws weren’t looking too good. I started off throwing in the low 50s, and I thought going into the finals that may be as far as I’d throw,” Ehrnsberger said. “And then something clicked in my head and I thought,’You got a big throw in you. So go after it.’ I did and I popped out that 59-05, and I felt really good about that.”
Chance Ehrnsberger, Ohio State recruit, of Sandusky places 3rd at the state meet in the shot put - 59-11.75
And 3rd in the discus as well. My surprise was that in looking at the results, Shane Pack from Upper Sandusky placed 7th at the state meet as a junior in the low 160s.... Very nice. I didn't even know my alma mater had a thrower.
Pack has been good since 7th grade. Has broken all the jr. High records for shot and disc. And now as a junior eclipsed hs. Disc record. Hams son is a soph. And if he can stay injury free should push Pack next year. Either way good year for Shane!!
