Local Sports

Odessa-Montour senior Zach Elliott received a parade on his return to Odessa-Montour High School on Saturday after winning a state title on Friday.

Elliott won a Division II state title in the shot put on Friday at the New York State track & field championships at Middletown High School.

Zach won a state title with a throw of 55 feet and 6 inches.

It was a special return home for Elliott.

“It means a lot because I’ve put a lot of hard work into it so for people to come and support me, it hits the heart,” said Elliott.

Elliott also finished in fifth place in the Division II discus with a throw of 149-3.
