Bonnett places third in discus, fourth in shot at state meet

In Friday’s and Saturday’s state track meet, Braxton’s Lucas Bonnett finished third in the discus throw and fourth in the shot put.
Bonnett holds the school record in the shot put at 51’04” ; however, his best effort at the state level was 49’06.75.” His third place in the discus came at 145’10”.
Track coach Jarren Morlan noted that “over 900 individuals from across the state” competed in the weekend event. They were, however, divided into A, AA, and AAA teams. Looking at Braxton’s two entries, Bonnett in the shot and discus and Cameron Currence in discus, the coach said that Cameron and Lucas were “throwing against the best in West Virginia.”
He continued to explain that Bonnett competed first in the shot put and “finished fourth out of 16.” He said, “[Lucas] threw a new personal record . . . in the discus giving him third.” Morlan added, “Cameron, however, was suffering a back injury and did not do as well as he hoped, only throwing 119’07”. I am proud of Cameron for not letting a back injury keep him from giving it all he had and strive for a new personal record. However, I know he would have thrown a new personal record Saturday had the injury not been an issue.”
The coach also noted that Bonnett is going to Glenville State College this fall, where he will continue competing. He reported that Currence “is being sought after by both Glenville and Concord as a thrower for the 2017-18 season” and said that he is looking forward to watching both young athletes grow in their sports.
Expressing his appreciation for the help that Lauri Spencer, cross country coach at BCHS, gave the distance runners, Morlan said, “Coach Spencer improved the distance kids to new personal records and achieved many goals this season.”
Concluding, the coach commented, “Although our team was young this year, we had a lot of great accomplishments and personal records set; therefore, I am encouraged for the future of the BCHS track program and the upcoming potential.”
