Faldermeyer wins boy’s weight at National Scholastic Indoor Championships

Alec Faldermeyer (Minisink Valley, Slate Hill, NY) capped a great season with a great weekend. After dominating the Nike Indoor Nationals meet on Friday, Faldermeyer won a close competition at the National Scholastic Indoor Championships on Friday. Faldermeyer was hoping to break Walter Henning’s state record, but his best throw was just short at 84’09.75″.  He did have one foul that was very close.  Faldermeyer told Dyestat.com that “I didn’t think I fouled and it looked like it was around 88 feet, but they said my foot just touched outside. I really wanted that record, but winning two nationals titles is something I’m real happy with that.”

His closest challenger, Justin Welch (Eastwood, Pemberville, OH), was only a foot behind with a final round effort of 83’07.25″. Welch’s result was nearly a two foot personal best and moved him to number four on the all-time national high school list. Davis Fraker (McIntosh, Peachtree City, GA) took third. Fellow Throw1Deep throwers Caleb Whitener (Paulding, Dallas, GA) and Akil Mills (Grayson, Loganville, GA) also broke 70-feet, with Whitener throwing a personal best.
