Methodist senior D.J. Twitty won the shot put Friday at the 2019 USA South Athletic Conference Track & Field Championship hosted by Berea College.

Twitty posted a personal-best throw with his opening toss, of six, of 13.27 meters (43 feet-6 ½ inches) to become one of five Methodist athletes to win individual conference titles.

Piedmont College captured the league titles in the men’s competition, followed by Berea and Methodist.
