(("I knew from the first time I saw him, he was gonna be special, an overused clich´┐Ż. But Northside's Ed Culicerto has a seventh grade track story that proves David Cabbler was destined for greatness. ((ED CULICERTO:)) Two years ago, that toughness and the then sophomore's endless ability earned Cabbler track and field trip to Russia.
((DAVID CABBLER:))
This past weekend, he won the 300 hurdles, the 110 hurdles and the triple jump while placing third in the long jump at Salem's Cosmo track meet. ((:)) ((:)) Cabbler placed third in the state as a junior in his best event, the 300 hurdles, but his specialty is his versatility. ))
