Honesty Plays Big Role for Discus Thrower

Scorer marked down incorrect number of feet for throw in the finals

"He's got a bright future ahead of him, not only as a thrower but as a person," Barry said.

Davis Robey didn't think twice about being honest at last week's district track and field meet, regardless of the result. After all, it was simply the right thing to do.

An official scorer had erroneously listed Robey in fourth place at the Division I district discus meet May 16 at Mason, Ohio. The scorer had marked down 137 feet for Robey's throw in the finals when in reality he had thrown only 132 feet. Instead of qualifying for the regional by finishing in the top four, the Mason senior finished seventh. Moeller senior Nick Marsh earned the fourth and final spot.
