Redshirt freshman Boldizsar Kocsor was honored by the San Diego Hall of Champions as a Breitbard Star of the Month (July) after winning the Junior Pan-American title in the hammer throw.
Kocsor, a 2004 University City High graduate, unleashed a lifetime best throw of 223 feet, 7 inches in the hammer to win the Junior Pan American Games title July 31 in Windsor, Ontario. Kocsor had set a personal best in three straight meets. Earlier in the summer, he qualified for the Junior Pan Am Games by winning the USATF Junior National Championships with a then-personal best throw of 214-6. Kocsor improved to another personal best on July 16 with a throw of 219-5 in a meet at Azusa Pacific.
Kocsor redshirted the 04-05 track season and will be a vital member of the throws squad in the upcoming season.
