NORWICH – Three Purple Tornado throwers remain in preparation mode for the upcoming New York State Indoor Track Tournament, which will take place at Cornell University, in Ithaca, next weekend, March 5.
On the men’s side, both Thomas Reilly and David Bernstein have qualified for the shot put and weight throw competitions, while on the women’s side, Katelyn Shaver once again qualified for the shot put contest.
According to Norwich head throwing coach Thomas Stoddard, all three have a great chance of placing in the top echelon, but it will be a hard task. “It’s a true State Championship, no division I or II. It’s the best in the State competing against each other,” he said. “It would be quite an accomplishment to place in the top 10.”
