Multiple Teams · Roos’ Smith sweeps throwing events at area meet

Bobby Smith stole the show in the throwing events at the District 7/8-6A area track and field meet Thursday at Waco Midway.

Smith broke his own school record in the discus with a throw of 196 feet, 6 inches to capture gold, and he also hurled the shot put 57-8 to earn gold and move on to the Region I-6A meet in both events.

The top four finishers in each event at area qualified for the regional competition.

In boys running events, Killeen’s Cinque Sambula won gold in the 800-meter run with a time of 1 minute, 55.48 seconds. Sambula finished third in the 400 dash in 48.99, as well.
