Hedrick threw the shot put at the Division III district meet at Perkins High School on Thursday a distance of 56-feet-11 inches. Not only was that mark good enough to win the event and break his own school record — but it surpassed the old district mark by nearly three feet (54-feet-2) that was set in 2017 by Eastwood’s Dalton Andrews.
Also for St. Paul, both the boys and girls 4x800 relay teams advanced to next week’s Tiffin regional, as did high jumpers Camille Endsley and Kamryn Maxwell.
Endsley won the high jump (5-feet-2) and Maxwell was fourth (4-feet-10).
The boys quartet of Noah Avendano, Caleb Schwan, Nate Tokarsky and Zach Stine ran a time of 8:35.
The Flyer girls relay consisted of Claire Ceccoli, Madelyn McCall, Holly Powers and Lily Dowdell, which turned in a time of 10:35.5.
New London’s relay of Abigail Good, Dana Gustely, Kaylin Williams and Savannah Shaver won the 4x800 in 10:08.03 to reach the regional.
The New London boys 4x800 again took first, as Carson Coey, Mitchell Joppeck, Austin Reed and Curtis Joppeck turned in a winning time of 8:32.6.
Also for the Wildcats, Jacob Allen was second in the pole vault (14 feet), while Cayden Hofheins was fourth in the shot put (46-feet-10).
Western Reserve’s Alyssa Good also advanced in the discus throw, as her top effort of 111-feet-1 was good for fourth.
