A Meeting For the Record Books

Bud Spicer (right) and Chris Bolinger share a special moment – and a unique bond – when they finally get a chance to meet at the Douglas High School Homecoming game on Sept. 24. Spicer, who was being inducted into the DHS Hall of Fame the next day, held the DHS shot put record set back in 1958 – a record held for 57 years until Bolinger broke it in 2015 with a throw of 54’11”. “It was a wonderful coincidence that these two were able to meet,” said Cara Bolinger.
