Madison Captures Shot and Discus at State
We’re catching up very belatedly on some spring season news. Here is the first of several posts.
Shahra Madison captured a pair of titles at Saturday’s VISAA Division 2 Track & Field State Championships in Richmond, winning both the shot put and discus. It’s two more state championships for Collegiate, which won the Girls team title in last year’s competition.
Shahra threw 86-05 to take the discus by over 14 feet and then came back four hours later to claim the shot put, her winning toss of 28-11.5, a full two feet better than second place.
On the boys side, sophomore Frankie White finished 13th in the state 1,600 meters, trimming nearly five seconds off his previous best to clock in at 5:14.66.
