Randy McMullen from Kent Roosevelt was named as an All-American in the 1500 meter, discus and shot put. Randy was the first wheelchair athlete to compete at Poland in 2013. He also competed in 2014 where he set the state shot put record.
The OHSAA made history in 2013 by hosting wheelchair events at its state track and field championships. Through the continuing growth and success of Ohio Paralympic athletes, Ohio continues to set the bar for high school Paralympic athletics.
