National Scholastic Indoor Championships (NY)

In his first weight throw competition ever, junior Conor McCullough (Chaminade, West Hills, CA) set a new national record in the weight throw on Sunday to win the National Scholastic Indoor Championships. Last season, McCullough ranked second in the hammer throw with a sophomore record toss of 243’11”. Prior to Sunday, McCullough had never thrown a weight in competition. However, that did not stop him from throwing a national record of 87’10.75″. The throw eclipsed Walter Henning’s (St. Anthony’s, South Huntington, NY) national record of 86’05.50″ thrown at the same meet last year. It also broke the north american high school record of 87’05.00″ set by Dylan Armstrong (Kamloops, BC, Canada) set back in 1999. Second place at the competition went to former national leader Wes Wright (Villa Rica, GA).

Victoria Flowers (Classical, Providence, RI) almost made it two national records in one meet. Flowers won the girl’s competition on Sunday morning with a throw that was just 1.5″ off of her own national record. She will end the season as the national record holder and most consistent women’s thrower in high school history. Patrice Gates (Villa Rica, CA) took second, with Lauren Chambers (Kell, Marietta, GA) in third.
