Competing in the Class B Division for smaller schools in the 14-team event, Williams’ top throw of 46 feet, 10.5 inches won the division. And when the final results were tabulated, Williams’ distance would have won the Class A Division, which was won by Yorktown’s Mason Moulton (45-9).

Williams also finished fourth in the Class B discus competition with a best throw of 106-0 – good enough for ninth overall when both divisions were combined.

Waldron finished fifth in the Class B team standings with 45 points. The Mohawks trailed Wapahani (149), Monroe Central (120), Muncie Burris (63) and Tipton (56).
