Cox: Huge day at Mize meet
By becoming the new record-holder in the javelin for Louisiana Tech University, Joshua Cox kept it in the Ruston “family” at the Jim Mize Invitational Saturday afternoon.
The sophomore grew up in Ruston and starred in track and football at Cedar Creek High.
His throw of 220-8 at the annual Mize meet erased the previous mark of 219-4, set by — who else? — but another Ruston native: former Ruston High standout Larry Jones.
Cox erased Jones’ mark that had stood since 2008.
