Trey Mock and Omar Silva placed third and seventh in their respective events at last week’s Region IV Track and Field Meet in Kingsville.
Mock had some of his best throws of the season in the discus competition, and his best distance of 154-05.00 was actually recorded in the prelims on Friday morning.
“He tried – he did his best,” Tarpon track coach Joe Gonzales said Monday. “He was in the lead going into the finals. He had the best throw of anybody (in prelims).”
“The guy from Rio Hondo, Zuniga, got a good throw on his second attempt in the finals, and got it to 158 (feet). Then the guy from Rockport (-Fulton), on his first attempt in the finals, got 159.”
