Barrows Stands Alone

Athlete of the Week

May 15, 2019
Wetzel Chronicle

This week's top athlete is Magnolia junior shot and discus strong-man Jakob Barrows.

Jakob has been Mr. Consistency week-in and week-out and winning either the shot and discus time-after time, but falling a little short each week.

However, this past week, Jakob won the discus and shot-put May 9, at St Marys High School in heavy rain. His shot attempt was 48-0.50 as his grip on the shot wasn't great, but beat his Paden City strong-man E. J. Weber by more two inches.

Magnolia junior Jakob Barrows was named the Wetzel Chronicle Athlete of the Week after capturing both the discus and shot put events at the W.Va. Class A Region I track meet.

In the discus, again the footing wasn't great as well as his grip on the discus. Again under very-bad weather conditions, he tossed the discus 135-11 to claim the top throw in the Region I finals.
