"For the girls, Elizabeth Cast won the discus in a great throw of 126-4 with little help from any wind, just shy of her all-time best from last season. Elizabeth also placed third in the shot put at 33-2," commented Centennial head coach Rob Johansen. "Kenzie Crowder won opposite medals than Elizabeth in the same events. She won the shot put at 34-5 and placed third in the discus at 106-5.Andrew Heine and Logan Clonce led the boys winning one event and placing second in another. Andrew put the shot at 45-3 to remain unbeaten in his first three meets. He also placed 2nd in the discus at 131'-6". Logan Clonce had his best high jump of the season at 6-5. It's good to see him jumping that well this early in the season. We hope that means there are greater jumps to come during the year. Logan also won the long jump at 20-1 1/2 by only getting in one legal jump. He needs towork on hitting the take off board more consistently as he had to slow down to make that jump legal. Wayne Moss had a great day placing second in the 400 meter dash in 55.3 and having a 56 second split in the 1600 relay. I look for him to get his times down into the 52 range in the 400."
Centennial is back in action on Tuesday, April 9 at the Milford Invite.
