Girls Track and Field: Adding technique to her power was the difference for Wonders’ Britt

Even when she first took up throwing the discus and shot put back in middle school, she usually did well in competitions because of her brute strength, digging deep to launch the objects far, far away from the rest of the field.

But as Britt entered her senior season with the A.L. Brown track and field team, she knew something had to give.

Ongoing.

Fortunately for Britt, just as she began the 2018 outdoor season, Wonders throws coach Greg Warren brought in one of his friends ‘ former USC Beaufort standout Josh Roper — to provide some instruction to the team.

Roper, Britt said, honed in on technique, rather than power. It was about spinning in the circle the proper way and releasing the object, especially the shot, at just the right time.
