NCAA DIVISION II MEN – Coy Blair, Tiffin
Senior | Throws
Coy Blair was rock solid in the shot put this past weekend at the GLIAC Outdoor Track & Field Championships, claiming a league title and extending his distance from the nearest competitor on the descending order list with a personal-best mark of 19.90m (65-3½). The throw was the 4th-best on the week by any collegiate competitor, and it moves the senior up in the NCAA Division II collegiate outdoor record books to the 5th-best performer in the event.
His previous best on the season was 19.60m (64-3¾). The native of Logan, Ohio, is coming off an indoor season in which he won individual titles in the shot put and weight throw. After finishing 2nd a year ago at the NCAA Division II Outdoor Track & Field Championships in the shot put, Blair is looking to leave no stone unturned before wrapping up his collegiate career.
