Boys Weight Throw

From Dyestat: At the same time the vault fireworks were going on, Walter Henning was staging a one-man pyrotechnic display of his own over in the weight cage.

The 6-2, 224-pound junior from St. Anthony’s High School (South Huntington, NY), had a heart-stopping series of 77-4.5, 83-2, 78-1.5, 81-8.5, 81-2.75 and 81-5.25. Henning’s second round mark bettered the two-year old national indoor prep record of 82-10. It also gave him the best-ever junior class record.

“I was doing really good in practice this week,” said Henning. “I came here last night for practice and had a couple of 80-foot practice throws.

Henning’s heroics shaded the rest of the competition. Eric Flores (Custer, WY) was second with a 75-11 while junior Trevor Krachir (Twenty-nine Palms, CA), the son of former shot putter Hank Kraychir, took third with a mark of 74-11.75.

“I was real happy with today,” said Henning. “These were my best four throws, and now I have nine over 80 feet.”

Henning said he’s a dozen pounds heavier this year than he was in 2005, when he placed fourth at the Nike Indoors. “Last year my focus was all on training,” he said.
