For Bryan and Halee Hudson of Williamstown, the thought of going to the AAU Junior Olympics was a shocker when they competed in the national qualifier at Wittenburg University in Springfield, Ohio July 2 and 3 in shot put, discus and javelin events.
“I am excited and nervous,” Halee said. “There is going to be more people there with more experience than I do, but I am still looking forward to it.”
Bryan said as soon as he found out he was excited.
For their parents, Mandi and Chuck, it is an inspiring moment for their children.
