Vashon McCarthy (Ascot High School) won his pet event (Shot Put U20) at the Queens Grace Jackson Meet January 25, 2013 at the National Stadium. While Derrick Pitt of KC gave him something to think about with a Put of 15.44m, it was not enough to overhaul Vashon's Put of 15.84m. Everyone else was a metre or more behind.

Well I guess this proves that although principal Murray hasn't seen Vashon at the school training, he (Vashon) is actually training.

I wait with bated breath for the outcome of the Ascot school board meeting on the subject of Vashon going to Champs. Personally, I just think the meeting is a way of allowing principal Murray to backpedal on his initial statement, but frankly, as long as it allows Vashon to throw at Champs, so be it.
