Palmview’s Valencia aims for gold at state meet

20130420 Track 5A Area Field lg-03When it comes to hurling a 12-pound steel ball through the air, La Joya Palmview’s Felipe Valencia is considered by many to be the best in the state. Valencia will have the opportunity to prove them right at the shot put competition in the state track and field meet in Austin tomorrow.

After taking home the silver medal at state just one year ago, then sophomore Valencia proved that he was already among the best of the best. As this year’s top ranked 5A putter in the Lone Star State and with the district, area and regional championships already under his belt, Valencia needs just one more win to bring Palmview High School its first state championship. Lobos’ head boys track and field coach Margarito Requenez helps put this in perspective.

“It will mean a lot if he wins,” said Requenez. “This school has only been open five years and having the first state champion ever would mean a lot. It’s been a while since La Joya ISD has had a champion.”
