Toney took third place in the shot put at two recent meets. He had a throw of 42 feet last Saturday at the George Washington BB&T Classic at Charleston’s Laidley Field.
On Tuesday night, Toney was third again in the shot put at the Holzer Clinic Invitational at Point Pleasant High School with a toss of 46 feet 2 inches.
Tyler Nelson was fifth in the discus at Laidley with a throw of 108 feet.
Also at Point, Brynden “Worm” Street was fourth in the high jump with a leap of 5 feet 4 inches.
Jennings Workman was fourth in the 1,600 meters with a time of 5:04. He was sixth in the 800 meter-run with a time of 2:21.
Three of Logan’s relay teams placed at Point Pleasant.
The Logan 4x100 relay team of Jameson Copley, Chris Marcum, Street and Toney was third with a time of 49.1 seconds.
The 4x200 team was fifth in 1:51. The squad is made up of Zach Browning, Marcus Coleman, Kade Doss and Benny Adkins.
Logan’s 4x400 relay team of Workman, Joshua Jones, Paul Vanelst and Stephen Dilly took fifth place with a time of 4:25.
LHS track coach Gary Mullins said his squad performed well in the two meets.
“This was by far our best effort at a track meet,“ he said. “We finished with 21 team points which more than doubled our team points from any other meet. I am proud of our progress and we are getting better every meet. David Toney threw 46 feet and two inches in shot put, which is his personal record. David is also number one in our region at this moment for shot put. He is doing a great job.”
