Senior Toby Nwokedi threw one deep into the sectors yesterday, defeating all-comers from the likes of GHSA Juggernauts Parkview, et al, to climb atop the podium for his Gold Medal. Subsequently, Toby shattered a TCS record in the process. Toby threw the discus 111’ 10” eclipsing Morgan Pollard’s 108’ from 2007. No student at The Cottage School has ever thrown farther.
The Cougars were inspired by senior Toby Nwokedi who began the competition with a bang in the discus, and missed scoring in the shot by placing 9th at 27’09” as Aiden Misnuner placed a close 10th with a put of 27’02”. Misnuner garnered 10th in the discus with a spin and toss of 88’01”. Charles Young placed 17th in the discus with a throw of 37’07” and 13th in the shot with a heave of 18’07”. Leah Maresca grabbed a point for the girls for 8th in the discus at 20’08” and 12th in the heavy implement at 10’08”. Nicholas Daugherty proved his mettle by earning silver and bronze, respectively, in the Dream 1600m (5:12) and the grueling 3200m (11:26). Nick Helm placed16th in the 800m at 2:50.37 as neophyte Hutch Stowe continued to impress with his 17th place at 2:56.80. Helm also scored a point with his 8th place finish in the 1600m race at 6:10. Drew Elliott and Harrison Lee earned 41st and 44th places, respectively, in the swift 100m dash in 13.43 and 18.91. In the 200m dash, Kyle Kimble placed 12th with a well-run curve at 24.39, as mate Drew Elliott collected 33rd in 28.23. Kyle Kimble placed 12th in the 400m race in 57.33 as Hutch Stowe leaned across in 21st at 1:15.04. Kyle Kimble earned 8th in the long jump with a leap of 16’02.75. Please help us congratulate these stellar student-athletes as they continue to hone the blade for AAC conference, GISA AA region and the State Championships upcoming. The Cougars will compete next on 25 March at Galloway in all events.
