Max Moore and Jake Tucker had quite the run in the shot put and discus this summer.
The two athletes are each coming off successful junior years for the Newport track and field team, earning medals at the 4A OSAA state championships this past June. Tucker finished second in the shot put, and Moore finished second in the discus.
