Throw of the Week: Kevin Allen

5/16/2012

There are less than 100 students at Upton High School in the remote northeast corner of Wyoming, but that doesn't mean there isn't big-time track and field talent there.

Upton's Kevin Allen threw the discus 204 feet, 4 inches in his regional meet last weekend and will enter the WHSAA Championships this week in Casper looking to challenge John Godina's 1990 all-time state record of 210-4. It's one of Wyoming's most hallowed records.

Allen ranks US#3 with his throw from the Class 4A/2A/1A East Regional in Cheyenne, a nearly seven-foot improvement upon his previous best.
