Another meet and another PR for Cherokee graduate Lucciano Pizarro, a freshman at Penn State.
Pizarro heaved the 16-pound shot 55-1 1/2 Saturday at a Penn State Tai-Meet at the Ashenfelter Center in State College, Pa.
Pizarro, in his first three college meets, has improved from 50-3 1/4 to 53-10 1/2 to 55-1 1/2.
Pizarro popped his 55-1 1/2 on his second throw in a meet against Rutgers and Maryland. He finished behind only two teammates – senior Ben Peterson (59-5 1/2) and freshman Duane Knisley (55-4 3/4).
Penn State has its first meet away from State College this weekend with the Big Ten Preview at SPIRE Institute in Geneva, Ohio, which will host the Big Ten Championships later this month.
