CLARKSVILLE — PERFORMER OF THE WEEK

(April 8-13)

Codie Hamsley, Floyd Central

    Hamsley was a two-time winner at last Friday’s Floyd Central Invitational. He won the discus with a personal- and school-record throw of 200 feet, 7 inches. The toss by Hamsley, who finished second in the state a year ago, was nearly 8 feet farther than last year’s state championship distance. Hamsley also won the shot put with a throw of 52-6. That throw would have ranked 15th in last year’s state finals.
