Eddie Swisloski, a freshman at Cabool High School, has qualified for the Class 2 discus competition at the state track and field meet Friday in Jefferson City.
“A freshman thrower! He made the top four in the discus with a throw of 118 feet, 8 inches and finished in third place,” Coach Jamminy McCrosky said following the sectional meet at New Haven last Saturday.
And Swisloski barely missed qualifying in the shot put. “He missed in the shot put with a fifth place finish by half an inch, with a throw of 29 feet, 9.5 inches,” McCrosky said.
