Gardner Edgerton High School junior Andrew Sprague tossed the discus a school record 163-feet to win gold and lead the Blazer boys track team in a home Invitational last week.
“Andrew has been striving to set this record since his freshman year,” said Coach Brian McGee. “It’s quite an accomplishment to surpass it in only his junior year.”
With the 163-feet toss, Sprague ranks number two in the class 6A state in discus.
Sprague wasn’t the only Blazer to medal during the home invite last week. GEHS took first, second, third and fourth to sweep pole vault. Kyle Stubler took first, clearing 14-feet. Jazz Davis leaped to second place with a 13-feet clearance. Conner McGuire took third with a 13-feet clearance, and Davis Tropansky leapt into fourth place clearing 12-feet 6-inches.
In the high jump, junior Josh Muse took second clearing 5-feet 8-inches. Mason Lumley cleared a personal best 5-feet 6-inches to place third.
