As per the usual, the Charger’s throwing contingent performed well. Three time defending State Champ Stamatia Scarvelis took care of business and advanced easily in the Shot Put and Discus. She threw 49-10.50 in the Shot and 150-08.00 in the Disc, to win both events. Her brother Nicholas, a Dos Pueblos alumnus, won the PAC-12 title for the Shot Put for UCLA on Saturday. Stamatia will also be competing for the Bruins next year.
Senior Jon Dickinson competed in both Discus and Shot Put and advanced to Finals for the Shot Put. His throw of 50-02.00 was good enough for 8th place and the 2nd to last thrower to advance.
