Boys Discus - Bo Rules


By John Sullivan

Newport Harbor CA sr Bo Taylor was favored on the strength of his US#1 213-7 toss at the California State meet.  And though less-favorable wind conditions held him well below that season-best, it was still enough for the title.  His 187-9 opener took the early lead and his 3rd round 200-1 sealed the deal.

“It feels great to be the National champ,” Bo shared after the event.  “I threw at Golden West last year, so that helped get me ready.  I hope to do well in the shot tomorrow and then in the discus next week at US Jr Nationals.” 

Fellow Californian, El Toro sr Nick Robinson took the silver.  “Nick will be my roommate at UCLA this fall,” said Taylor.

Discus: Bo Taylor, winner of Sunday's Golden West title in Folsom, Calif., claimed his second title of the week here. The UCLA-bound Taylor took over the lead from Eric Werksey (Seymour, IN) with a third-round throw of 200-1 and fouled on his last two tries. “It's great,” said Taylor. “It's a national championship. It's hard to top that.”In the final round, Nick Robinson (Lake Forest, CA) picked off Werksey with a heave of 193-5. Werksey's 187-8 was good for third place. “I pulled away on my first two throws,” said Robinson. On my third throw – my best throw – I followed all the way through and got the win.” The 6-4, 240-pound Taylor, second at this year's California state meet, is the national leader at 213-7. His series Friday was 187-9, foul, 200-1, 194-4, foul, foul.

“It took a lot of practice,” said Taylor. “My technique has changed a little bit. I’m starting to get the hang of it and it’s really helping me out. I tried to approach it like I approach other events. I come in relaxed, get a good throw off and go from there.”
