WYLIE — Wylie East’s Destiny Williams had never thrown the shot put prior to this school year.
Just before spring track started, the Lady Raider sophomore decided to give it a go. She hasn’t stopped, and won’t for at least another week.
This past Friday, Williams fired the solid metal sphere 36-5.75 feet to capture third place during the 9-5A/10-5A area meet at Wylie High School.
That earned her a spot at this weekend’s Region II meet, which will take place Friday and Saturday at the University of Texas at Arlington.
“I never thought I would be here,” Williams said. “It would just be for fun; something to do. It’s opened doors for me.”
