News 12 CT/Webster Bank Scholar: Brad Kontra - Fairfield Prep
(04/13/09) FAIRFIELD - Fairfield Prep's Brad Kontra is tops in southwestern Connecticut when it comes to the shot-put. Kontra set a school record in the shot-put over the winter with a hurl of 55-feet, 7-inches. He is also an indoor state champ.
The Lehigh University-bound senior says he got into the event as it combined his passions of running and weightlifting. In addition to his athletic merits, Kontra carries a 4.13 GPA and plans on studying chemical engineering next year.
