About a week ago I was perusing through some of the Class B rankings and was just astonished that senior Trevor Begeman had thrown the shot 58'11". What I failed to do was look a little deeper a the throws to noticed that a herd of Wolverine throwers are putting up some monster numbers this season. 

Class B shot put rankings: 

1.Begeman, Trevor58'11.00"Herreid/Selby Area

2.Howard, Jacob51'05.50"Sully Buttes

3.Collins, Shane49'01.00"Bison

4.Fauth, Tucker47'07.00"Eureka/Bowdle

5.Lamb, Jett47'04.00"Sully Buttes

While Begeman is heads and shoulders above the competition in the Class B ranks, it is the discus where things get interesting as three Wolverine athletes have met the state's qualifying standard and are already qualified for the state meet. 

1.Fauth, Tucker161'08.00"Eureka/Bowdle

2.Collins, Shane160'06.00"Bison

3.Bohle, Emmit160'00.00"Herreid/Selby Area

4.Joachim, Jacob153'01.00"Corsica-Stickney

5.Spader, Koby152'00.00"De Smet

6.Begeman, Trevor150'06.00"Herreid/Selby Area

7.VanSickle, Duot 146'10.00"Bridgewater-Emery

8.Howard, Jacob146'04.00"Sully Buttes

9.Engen, Ethan143'09.00"Viborg-Hurley

10.Moehlenbrink, Reece143'07.00"Ipswich

11.Obele, TJ142'00.00"Herreid/Selby Area

A couple of really impressive notes here...

Senior Emmit Bohle hasn't competed in track since the 7th grade, and despite that lack of experience, he has the third best Class B discus throw in the state with 160'.

First-year Herreid/Selby coach Todd Obele said he walked into the perfect situation. 

"I've had a lot of help from a fella by the name of Tom Rice," Obele said. "It's just hard work with these kids, they hit the weight room hard and they help each other out with technique so I couldn't ask any more from them." 

Bohle has been battling some injuries but Obele said he will be back in time for Regions.

What a region discus competition that should be...Region 2...Six of the 12 pre-qualified throwers come from Region 2

While Begeman and Bohle are seniors, how ever far they put the shot or throw the discus, it might not be far enough for school records, coach's son, TJ Obele is just a sophomore.
