Former teammates Ashe and Chambers qualify for World Juniors

National high school record holder Shelby Ashe (St. Pius X, Atlanta, GA) easily won the USATF junior national title on Thursday. After fouling her first throw and taking an easy second throw, Ashe took the lead in the third round and didn’t look back. As the competition finished, she was more than ten feet ahead of second place thrower Lauren Chambers and set a new meet record.  Chambers, who threw with Ashe as a member of the Throw1Deep throwers club last year, is currently a freshman at the University of Southern California. Earlier this month, Ashe also broke the national junior record set by Chambers earlier in the season. Patrice Gates (Villa Rica, GA), another member of Throw1Deep, also placed third. By placing in the top two spots, Ashe and Chambers qualified to represent the U.S. at the World Junior Championships in Moncton, Canada next month. The junior men’s championship will take place Friday morning.
