Sadosky Shatters School Shot Standard

Ryan Sadosky broke the Enfield High School shot put record that had stood for 40 years.

senior Ryan Sadosky obliterated a 40-year-old school record in the shot put Tuesday in a three-way track and field meet at Stafford High School.

Competing against Stafford and Sports Medical Sciences Academy, Sadosky heaved the shot 46 feet, 8 inches to break the school record by half a foot. The previous record of 46 feet, 2 inches was set in 1972 by Raymond Giguere, and stood for four decades. 

Sadosky set two goals for himself prior to this season. The first was to set the school record.  

"I go past the display of school records every day, and saw the record was 46-2," he said. "I made that my goal, and I've been getting closer and closer. I gave it everything I had in my throw today."

Sadosky's previous best throw was 46 feet in an indoor event, and 45 feet, 5 inches outdoors.

His other goal is to qualify for the National High School Track and Field Meet in the Emerging Elite class in the javelin throw. "I'm six feet away from that mark," he said.

Sadosky also excels in the discus throw. He has attained state meet standards in all three events this season.

"It couldn't happen to a nicer guy," coach Todd Cunha said. "He's been a team leader for four years, and his dedication has paid off."
