Ashe set new national record to win National Scholastic Indoor Championships

Junior Shelby Ashe (St. Pius C, Atlanta, GA) shattered the national high school weight throw record on Sunday morning. At the National Scholastic Indoor Championships in New York City, Ashe improved her personal best by more than four feet and added three feet to the national record with a winning throw of 65-04.25. The previous record of 62-02.00 was set in 2008 by Victoria Flowers (Classical, Providence, RI). The mark also eclipses Maureen Griffen’s (Pocatello, ID) 13-year old national junior class record of 60-10.50. Griffen’s record was the oldest standing high school boy’s or girl’s weight throw record.

The competition was also a deep one. Melissa Kurzdorfer (Lancaster, NY) was fresh off of a win at Nike Indoor Nationals on Friday and took second place with a near best of 60-07.75. Diana Levy (Kennesaw Mountain, Kennesaw, GA) also nearly broke sixty feet and placed third. Aleide Fernandes (Central Falls, RI) threw 56-10.75 for fourth place. That throw was her second PR over the weekend. Four other throwers also surpassed 50-feet in the competition.
