Nick Agoris didn’t think of postponing his Big A Throwers Open, now in its 17th year, because of some inclement weather in the area.
And despite a steady rain that enveloped Carroll County on Saturday, the modified track meet went on as planned at Liberty High School.
Agoris, a 1980 South Carroll High School graduate and former two-time state champion in the shot put, created the meet for throwing events only. Field athletes of all ages and skill levels are welcome to attend and compete in shot, discus, and javelin.
The javelin isn’t a sanctioned high school event, but it’s popular in most track meets.
Agoris wanted to showcase those events because they’re often an afterthought, he said, at track meets.
