Stockton wins discus, advances to state meet

THE BELLINGHAM HERALDMay 18, 2013 

Ferndale's Shane Stockton booked his trip to the Class 3A state track meet after posting a mark of 141 feet, 8 inches in the finals of the discus on Friday, May 17, at the Class 3A Northwest District meet in Marysville.

Stockton was the Golden Eagles' lone athlete to make it past districts into the state meet. And while his day was capped by the first-place finish in the discus, Stockton fell short in the shot put after a toss of 41-10.50, good for eighth place.

Other notable performances came from Daniel Jones and Ryan Pringle in the 200 finals. The two Ferndale runners finished fifth and sixth, respectively, although only the top-3 athletes move on to the state meet.

Jones also finished just outside the state-qualifying mark in the 400 after finishing in seventh.
