State 4A track and field: Mead’s Jordynn Hutchinson continues family trend of winning shot put titles
As Mead sophomore Jordynn Hutchinson received her medal on Saturday after winning the State 4A girls shot put title, an announcer at Mount Tahoma HS emphatically broadcast her name through the venue’s sound system.
Three steps down the podium was her freshman sister, Emily Hutchinson, who tried to match that volume.
“That’s my sister!” Emily proudly exclaimed after placing fourth in the same event.
This was a familiar scene for the Hutchinson family.
Jordynn, who recorded a personal-best throw of 43 feet, 3 inches, became the fourth of the Hutchinson sisters to win a state shot put title for Mead.
