USATF Junior National Championships (IN)

Another meet and another record for Walter Henning. Henning set a new national junior record with the 6kg hammer at this year’s USATF Junior National Championships at IUPUI in Indianapolis, Indiana. Henning had a very consistent series with a best throw of 73.59m (241’05”) on his fifth attempt. Henning set the previous record last season with a toss of 238’02”.

The USATF Junior Championships is open to any athlete who will not reach the age of 20 during the 2007 calendar year. As such, several college freshman took part in the competition. Former high school standout Emily Bernhardt won the girl’s competition. Senior Gabby Midles (Camas, WA), however, came close to the fin on her final throw by moving from fifth to second place and setting a new personal best in the process.
