On This Day in History | 1951

Cuffari 1950 Track
Cuffari as a Brooker in 1950

On this day 67 years ago, Paul Cuffari ’50 won the shot put and discus to help Grove City College to a narrow 66-65 victory over Washington & Jefferson College.

Grove City needed to win the final two events of the day, the broad jump and the discus, to secure victory. Cuffari did his part to help lead the Wolverines to the win.

Cuffari went on to set the college’s shot put record with a 49′ 6″ heave in 1954, a mark that stood for 29 years.
