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.
