Women’s Athlete of the Week: Meghan O’Mara

Meghan O’Mara (Sayville, N.Y./Sayville) tied for first in the Kutztown Spring Invitational on Sunday afternoon signing for a 76, which in conjunction with solid rounds from her teammates was enough to lift West Chester to its seventh consecutive Tournament victory in the 2018-19 season. As a team, West Chester shot 328, which easily outdistanced host Kutztown who recorded a 366 to finish in second place. West Chester will be back in action on Monday and Tuesday afternoons as the Golden Rams are set to host the Dr. Edwin B. Cottrell Invitational at Penn Oaks.

 

Men’s Athlete of the Week: Ralph Casper

Ralph Casper (York, Pa./York Suburban) had a solid weekend for West Chester competing in the Bill Butler Invitational as he recorded three victories as he took the discus, hammer, and shot put titles in what was a solid performance for the sophomore. In the shot put, Casper registered a mark of 54 feet 3 ¼ inches, which stands as both a PSAC Qualifying standard and an NCAA Division II Provisional qualifying. Meanwhile, Casper also recorded PSAC Qualifying standards in both the discus and hammer throw as he recorded a mark of 160-8 in the discus and 168-3 in the hammer throw.
