Oguchi is SPC Champion in Discus and Shot Put, Dragon Boys Track & Field Finishes Sixth

Results from the week of May 3

Coach Scott Holland: Amarachukwu Oguchi finished her Cooper career dominating the Shot Put and Discus at the SPC Championships.  She won the shot by 8’ and won the discus by 42’.  It has been a great run and since her chance at SPC Titles were ended last year by COVID, I so glad she got this opportunity to shine.  She was the only girl from The John Cooper School to qualify for the SPC championships with 22 Cooper athletes qualifying.

On the boys’ side, Ben Currin and William Young each earned All SPC Honors placing second in the Discus and Pole Vault.  Young’s finish in the Pole Vault tied the school record 12’ 6’.

The rest of the squad competed well.  We did miss a few point here and there.  We finished sixth overall with only six points separating fourth from sixth place.
