The finals in all field events were conducted on the first day of the District 32-4A track and field meet Tuesday at Tarpon Stadium, and four Tarpon athletes medaled in those events.
Juan Muñiz, Nicholas Marquez, Trey Mock, and Ian Torres all placed in the top three in their respective events.
Muñiz was third in the high jump with a height of 5-08.00. Marquez took second in the shot put with a distance of 45-09.25, and Ian Torres was right behind in third at 45-06.50. In the discus it was Mock showing in second place with a toss of 148-03.50.
If there was a medal for the outstanding performance of the day in field events it likely would have gone to Rio Hondo’s Michael Zuniga. All Zuniga did was exceed 57 feet (57-02.75) in the shot put and 155 feet (155-01.5) in the discus to win gold in both events by wide margins.
