Phok, Henning win Millrose High School Weight Throw

Senior Tim Phok (Classical, Providence, RI) won the high school weight throw at the 103rd edition of the presitgious Millrose Games.  Phok threw a personal best in the first round, but sat in fifth place entering his final throw.  On his last attempt, he threw another three-foot personal best to narrowly take the lead over James Hall (Beacon, NY).  Hall also threw a personal best in the competition.

The girl’s was led from start to finish by Karen Henning (St. Anthony’s, South Huntington, NY).  Henning, who will be following her brother Walter Henning to LSU next year, threw her best in the second round to hold off Angela Onye (Classical, Providence, RI).

After the high school competition was finished, an elite competition took place.  Davis Fraker (McIntosh, Peachtree City, GA) placed fifth in the competition with a throw of 60’10.00″.  That throw improved Fraker’s personal best with the collegiate 35-pound weight.  The elite competition was won by former national high school record holder Jacob Freeman (Bishop Hendricken, Warwick, RI – Class of 1999) with a throw of 77’04.00″, the second furthest mark in the world this year.
