Ava David Overpowers Competition in CYO Cadet Girls Shot Put Championship


Ava David came into the CYO Championship events with a seeded put of 35’8″.  She won the event with a put of 37’9.5 inches which I have to believe is a personal best for her.  If so, the championship event was the best time to have a personal best.  Paige Cooper was on Ava’s heels all the way with a similar story.  Both girls are to be commended on their distances.  Anna Adamko set a 40″ record in 2007 which would be fun to see broken!

CHAMPION: Ava David (Our Lady of the Lake) 37’9.50″

2nd: Paiger Cooper (All Saints) 36’11.5″
