Morell Breaks OHS Record

At Yellowjacket Invitational

Morell smiles after a successful throw at the Yellowjacket Invitational.

ONEONTA – With an AP exam on Friday, May 10 and another one scheduled for Monday, May 13, Bradley Morell still had time to break a school discus record at the Yellowjacket Invitational on the Lloyd Baker Field.

With a toss of 163’ 8”, Morell eclipsed his season best set last week of 160’ 0”.  The previous record was held by Jim Hurtubise in 2003, and was 163’ 3”.  Morell was very happy with his throw, and is looking toward the Section IV record of 176’ 0”, set by Ithaca’s Sam Cherney in 2012.

Morell helped his team by also winning the shot put with a put of 47’ 4”, a season best by almost a foot and a half.

In all, the girls took second out of 16 teams competing in the invitational, scoring 68.5 points, and the boys placed third with 43.5. Powerhouse Norwich won both.
