This months Nex-Tech Wireless Central Kansas Athlete of the Month is Hillsboro High School senior track and field athlete Wes Shaw.
Shaw, who set the 2A meet record last season at 60-11.50 in the shot put, is off to a monster senior season. He has the #7 mark in Kansas history with his toss of 64-01 this season. It's also the #13 mark in the United States this season.
Shaw is also an accomplished discus thrower as he has a 176-07 throw in the event which ranks #3 in all classes of Kansas this year and #1 in 2A.
Shaw has signed with Harding University in Arkansas at the next level. Look for him in a couple of weeks at the state outdoor in Wichita to bring home some new hardware and perhaps set another state meet record in 2A.
Nex-Tech Wireless would like to congratulate Shaw on an oustanding career so far and wish him best of luck for the remainder of the season.
