Powers takes Bay State Games discus title


Hopkinton High School rising senior Kate Powers blew away the competition in the Bay State Games scholastic discus competition on July 10. Powers recorded a throw of 130 feet, 1 inch, which was almost 35 feet farther than her nearest competitor. It also was the longest throw in any division (including adults).

Powers is the reigning Tri-Valley League champion in the discus and shot put.

Classmate Sarah Furlong was on the Southeast region volleyball team that finished in second place, losing a hard-fought, three-set match to the Northeast in the gold medal game.

Coincidentally, Furlong was the TVL champion in the javelin this spring.
