Williamsville’s F.J. Simpson qualified for the boys state track meet in Charleston this Thursday in both the shot put and discus at the Maroa-Forsyth Class 1A Sectional held at Millikin last Friday.
The recent WHS grad won the discus by almost five meters, 46.25 to 41.60 for Tri-Valley’s George Isaacs; (151 feet, 8 3/4 inches). He also placed second in the shot put, his 15.04 meter heave (49-4 1/4) behind only Isaacs’ 15.58.
His discus rank is seventh heading to Charleston, and the shot put was 10th best statewide.
