Biggers - 149'9
By Rich Winter
Scrolling through the Region 7B track results and one of the events that really jumped off the page was seeing that Lyman junior, Jadeon Biggers won the Region 7B discus with a throw of 149'9. Haven't seen that many Lyman results this year, and haven't SEEN Biggers throw over 135 feet previously so Thursday's results is a HUGE personal best.
Region 7B discus results:
1 Biggers, Jadeon 11 Lyman 149-09.00 FAT 10
2 Rodgers, Jory 12 Kadoka Area 127-08.00
The Discus result is pretty interesting. As Biggers heads to the state meet, he'll face off against one of the DEEPEST Class B discus fields, EVER...
