Catherine Drury

Coventry High School (CHS) junior and member of the CHS track and field team, Alex Krause, finished the 2021 season with numerous accomplishments. To summarize, in June, Alex won the Connecticut Interscholastic Athletic Conference (CIAC) Class S shotput and discus championships, while also finishing 4th in the javelin, he placed 2nd in the CIAC State Open Championship in discus and 4th in the shotput, followed by winning the CIAC hammer throw championship at Willowbrook Park in New Britain.

His local success and sportsmanship earned Alex the opportunity to travel to Eugene, Oregon to compete in the U.S. National Track and Field Championship on June 30. At that meet, Alex threw the hammer over 204’ and finished 9th in the nation!

Coventry Public Schools applaud Alex and Coach Bill Vanderrest on such an amazing season.
