Keith Barnes profiles West Allegheny javelin thrower Skyler Mason.
"Skyler Mason only competed in one event at the two-day PIAA Class AAA track and field championships at Shippensburg University's Seth Grove Stadium.
Because that particular event, the javelin, didn't get started until Saturday at 12:30 p.m., Mason, a junior at West Allegheny, had a lot of time to kill before his first throw.
"I thought it was fun sitting around all day Friday and watching the running events because I never get to do that and then we went mini-golfing," Mason said.
"But on Saturday I went out and watched the girls throw in the morning, then it got real nerve-wracking.""
