Blede breaks own shot record at Best of Midwest

Senior throws 52-1.

SUTHERLAND—Eagle senior Corbin Blede broke the Brady school record in the shot a month ago at Arnold with a toss of 50 feet, 5.25 inches.

He hasn’t come close to that mark again during competition and some opponents may have thought it was a fluke.

But when Blede threw 52-1 at the Best of the Midwest meet in Sutherland last week, he erased any doubts along with his previous school record.

Blede won the event easily at nearly 2 feet farther than the second-place finisher.

He was the only Brady competitor to earn a gold medal at the invitation-only meet that brings together the area’s best athletes.

The Eagle boys earned a total of seven individual medals and got fifth in the 4x800 relay.

The girls earned five individual medals along with a fifth-place relay team finish in the 4x400 relay.
