He finished runner-up to the now graduated Grady Brasher of Claiborne Academy. This leaves the top podium spot open for Redwine to work for these upcoming years.

Redwine is no stranger to the first place blue ribbon. He won six contests as a freshman across the throwing events. At the 2022 Lee Academy Invitational, he swept both the shot put and discus competitions.

With all the success Redwine has had, it is easy to forget that he is only a rising sophomore. With just two years of throwing under his belt, he has already picked up many impressive accolades and achievements.

After an extraordinary freshman year, it will be exciting to watch Bryce Redwine continue to improve as an athlete and take the MAIS world by storm.
