Amarachukwu Oguchi has started her senior season off with a bang.

In the first meet of the season, coming off a year where the high school track season was canceled in mid-March of 2020, the John Cooper School thrower set the bar high right out of the gates by setting a new school record in the discus with a toss of 142-feet-6-inches.


Looking back to 2020, the best discus throw by Oguchi came also in the first meet at the Woodlands Christian Invitational with a toss of 122-feet-7-inches. Due to the shortened season, John Cooper School only competed in four meets and there were no SPC Championships.

In the summer, Oguchi competed in 10 different events for discus and her distances just kept getting better and better. On July 24 in the PPA Virtual Meet #12 she hit 135-2.5, on July 31 in the USATF Youth Virtual Summer Challenge she hit 140-6.5 and then 142-11 on September 4.
