|Sandy's strong left arm propelled him to the pinnacle of prep javelin throwing. He launched the spear 219-10 to set a state record and win the state title in 1964. That toss ranked as the second longest by a high school athlete in the nation. Sandy also started at end in football and as a basketball forward for the Panthers.
The talented lefty continued javelin throwing at Washington State University where he was a four-time "All-American." His crowning accomplishment was a 258-11 toss to win the NCAA championship in 1968. That throw set a WSU record and ranked as the third longest in college history. Considered as a top contender to make the Olympic team. Sandy unfortunately suffered an injury during the Olympic Trials to force him out of the competition.
