Tigers send Henry to state

-A A +A
By Jenna McKenna

WINTER PARK -Durrell Henry finished 15th in the shot put at the FHSAA Class A track and field final in Winter Park Friday, but the finish didn?t matter.

What mattered was that Henry was the lone athlete from Trenton High School at the state meet, and he represented his school well. The senior shot putter qualified for state with a 41-6 effort at the regional meet at Tallahassee Maclay last week, good for fourth place there.

Henry did not fare as well at the state meet, missing the final with a 38-11 1/2 best throw in the qualifier. Still, he was gratified to have made the appearance after only throwing the shot for two years.

"I've never really had that much practice," he said. "I don't have a lot of technique - I just throw."

Robbie Rome, first-year track coach and a 2004 graduate of Trenton, watched his thrower compete. "I think it's great Durrell qualified for state," he said. "We hope to bring more athletes up next year."

Rome gave Henry some good-natured grief about a long drive for three throws, but it was clear Rome was proud of Henry's effort.
