USATF Junior National Championships (OH)

Walter Henning eclipsed his meet record by less than a foot at this year’s USATF Junior National Championships. Along with Conor McCullough, both qualified to represent the US at this year’s World Junior Championships in Poland. At the USATF Junior Championship, all athlets who will not turn 20 during the calendar year are eligible to compete. This allows college freshman such as Henning to compete. The men also throw a 6-kilogram hammer rather than the standard 12-pound high school hammer. Two college throwers, Irene Cooper and D’Ana McCarty qualified for the women’s world team.
