Tie throws future roommates for a loop in shot put

FREE PRESS STAFF • May 31, 2009

“I just knew I had to get it done or take second place home,” said Dennis of Grandville.

His last throw was 57 feet, 9 inches, the same as Andrew Evans of Portage Northern.

“I thought it was a 58,” Evans said of Dennis’ last throw. “It happened last year in the discus. I tied that, too, but won with my last throw. So it’s kind of a weird thing with me.”

The state championship was decided by which thrower had the second-best throw. Dennis’ second best was 57-3 1/4 ; Evans’ was 57-1 3/4 .
