Erritt has breakout in shot put ring, Lynx second in team race

Parks and May both double winners at Boone Invitational

May 2, 2012
The Daily Freeman Journal

BOONE - Breaking into the territory of 51 feet and beyond hasn't been easy for Webster City senior shot put competitor Nick Erritt, but now that he's there he hopes to only go further.

Stuck in the mid-50s, but winning gold in almost every meet so far this season, Erritt finally accomplished his personal goal at last night's Boone Invitational as he launched the weighted ball 51-5.25 to take top honors.

"Breaking into the 51 range has been the mental barrier, so I know that (throws coach) Clint (Howard) felt really good about that," WCHS head coach Tony Bussan said. "Now hopefully Nick can be consistent and go beyond that."

Webster City won six events and placed in the top three on 15 occasions en route to 112 points and a runner-up finish behind host Boone (125). Fort Dodge St. Edmond was third with 98, followed by Nevada (56) and Johnston (29).

Seniors Keagan Parks and Andrew May were both double winners. Parks followed up his strong Drake Relays showing with victories in the 100- (10.95 seconds) and 200-meter (22.42) dashes. May was the field leader in the 110 high hurdles (15.47) and 400 low hurdles (1:00.32).

Nick Thilges, Eric Coleman, Jacob Clabaugh and Brandon Arkland teamed up to win the 4x800 relay (10:47.91).
