Retired Menomonee Falls High School Principal Richard P. Woosencraft was eighth in the shot put and 10th in the discus in the age 60 and older class in the US Masters National track meet held recently at UW-Oshkosh.
Woosencraft said the field of close to 20 athletes in each event was extremely competitive. He threw 38 feet for his spot in the shot put and 121 for his place in the discus. A long-time competitor in masters track competition, he was amazed that the winning discus toss in his class was over 169 feet.
"I was caught in one of the best classes out there," he said. "If I had been a little older or a little younger, I would have placed much better." Woosencraft was pleased with his efforts as he is still recovering from a bad hamstring injury suffered more than a month ago.
