T.C. Williams High School track stars win big at state championships

For the second year in a row, T.C. Williams track and field stars Wisdom Williams has taken home the state championship in the shot put.

The Virginia High School League’s State Championships were held at Todd Stadium in Hampton, Virginia, on Saturday.

Williams, a junior, set the state record in shot put with a throw of 47:00-50 — beating her winning throw last year by nearly five feet. She also won in the discuss, throwing 137 feet and four quarters of an inch.

T.C.’s athletics director James Parker says to expect big things from Williams, who started making waves with big throws in her freshman year.

“We’re hoping that Wisdom will be an Olympian,” Parker said.

Titan jumpers David Coles and Joshua Peterson also won top honors.

Coles, who will run at Virginia Commonwealth University this fall, won the triple jump with a jump of 48 feet and two-and-a-half inches; and Peterson won the long jump with a 24-foot-9-inch jump.
