Track and Field: Connelly, Armstrong 14th at state meet
ST. PAUL – Nick Connelly had the kind of ability to medal at the state track and field championship. With a state-qualifying throw of 54 feet, 9 ¼ inches, Connelly was seeded seventh in Friday’s Class 2A shot put competition, and two feet separated Connelly from the event’s No. 3 seed.
But in hoping to get into the shot put finals, Connelly got too worked up trying to stay in the thrower’s circle, and that proved to be problematic.
