Broken Arrow’s Farrow etches name into record book

Reasors Track Classic notebook

Bo Farrow was present at last year’s Reasors Track Classic. But all he did was watch as his teammates participated in the annual event at Tahlequah High School.

“I’ve been coming to this meet ever since I was in seventh grade,” Farrow said. “Last year was the first year I didn’t get to compete in it [because of an out-of-state event the next day.] To be here, it feels pretty good.”

He certainly made himself right at home in 2013, setting two meet records in both the shotput and the discus.

“It feels good, but I didn’t throw my best,” said Farrow, who unleashed throws of 169 feet, 9 1/2 inches in the discus and 59 feet, 8 1/2 inches in the shotput — two throws which no one came close to touching on Friday.

In both events, Farrow unseated Bartlesville’s Devin Randall, who tallied two meet records in 2011.

Ironically, 2011 was when Farrow participated in his first Reasors Track Classic at the varsity level. His sophomore year he finished fourth in the discus at 149 feet, 7 inches. (Farrow was unable to compete in the Reasors Track Classic his freshman year because the event was rained out 45 minutes after it started).

This season, Farrow — who has signed to play football and throw shotput and discus at Pittsburg State — entered the Reasors Track Classic (and every other meet) knowing that other throwers are just trying to keep up with him.

“I just try to throw my farthest,” Farrow said of his approach in every meet as the favorite. “I just want another PR (personal best) at every meet. That’s all I want to do.”

Team titles

Thanks to Farrow’s efforts in both throwing events, the Broken Arrow boys snuck past Jenks for the team title on Friday. The Tigers recorded 152.75 points with Jenks falling just short at 149.75.

Union was a close third at 140.

Broken Arrow also claimed the girls crown with 142 points. Jenks was second with 138, and Union was a distant third at 106.
