  • HS Girl injured by discus

    School officials said a member of the boys track team was practicing discus throwing inside the net. An airborne discus, which range in weight from 2 to 4 pounds, struck the 11th grade girl in the head. "She was watching another individual practice and the individual, throwing the disc prematurely, released it and struck her, glanced off her head," said Principal Larry Butterini.
    The student was reportedly conscious and talking, but as a precaution, a medical helicopter landed on the field to take to the student to UPMC Presbyterian hospital.
