Like the boys shot put, there will be a changing of the guard in the boys' discus. State record holder Jordan Geist has graduated, as have all medalists in AAA, which means there's room at the top for a new discus leader in Pennsylvania.

One boy who could be looking to seize the top spot in Zach Gehm of Seneca Valley. The senior was 11th at states as a junior last year and threw a best of 180-03 at the Mars Invitational, making him the top returner. Gehm will look for another solid season and possibly a AAA title.

He'll get good competition from WPIAL rival Sam Mastro of South Fayette. Mastro threw 179-02 last season, but missed out on qualifying for states in a loaded District 7. Mastro had a strong winter, so he'll look to ride that into the spring. The Selinsgrove duo of Keith Dreese and Brennen Wolf should also be in for big years. Bensalem's Yobani Moreno, who improved a lot this winter in the shot, will look for a big improvement in the discus as well. All should be in the mix for the AAA state crown.

Others to watch for in AAA include Corry Area's Jacob Nelson, Methacton's Patrick Maloney, and Belle Vernon's Jake Herron.


In AA, the one to beat looks to be Alex Martin of Dock Mennonite. He posted a big PR of 159-09 at the state meet to place seventh at Ship. He improved a lot between his sophomore and junior seasons, and he'll be looking to make another nice leap this season.

Trinity's Dante Manetta (fifth), Quaker Valley's Dom Lagnese (sixth), and Danville Area's Darien Yeager (seventh) are among the other returning medalists in AA that will look to move up on the podium this spring.
