Waggoner takes second in Oakland
Carson Valley Middle School eighth-grader Jessica Waggoner scored a 203 in the sectional Punt, Pass & Kick championships in Oakland, Calif., last weekend to take second.
Waggoner entered the event ranked No. 1 in the nation.
Two other Carson Valley residents, Cody Lommori and Jordan Chappell, competed at sectionals over the weekend as well. Chappell took fifth in her division.
All the competitors received a jersey, sweats, a hat and tickets to Sunday’s Raiders game against the Chiefs. Each participant got a chance to throw at halftime in front of the whole crowd, and Waggoner threw the ball 55 yards, drawing ‘oohs’ and ‘aahhs’ from the fans.
