Getting to the state tournament is hard enough, but nearing winning a championship and reaching the podium is a whole other accomplishment.
Port Clinton junior Morrisa Mallory nearly won the Division II title in the shot put, finishing with a throw of 43 feet, 2.5 inches, less than a foot behind the winner, Garrettsville Garfield’s Edith Svonavec (44-01.25). She also placed in the discus, finishing seventh with a toss of 126-04. Her effort alone notched 10 points for the club, helping the Redskins to finish with 10 points, good for 20th in Div. II.
