Midles breaks Washington state record

Senior Gabby Midles (Capital, Olympia, WA) set a new Washington state record at the Centralia Twilight meet on Wednesday, July 21.  Midles, who entered the competition with a best of 169’7″, improved her best to 175’10”.  In the process, she broke the state record of 173’7″ set by her cousin Gabby Midles in 2007.  Gabby currently throws for the University of Idaho and placed 13th at the NCAA Championships this year.  The younger Midles will compete for Eastern Washington University next season.

The boy’s competition also featured some great results.  Senior Jordan Arakawa (Capital, Olympia, WA) improved on his personal best from earlier this month with a throw of 218’3″.

The competition took place in Centralia on a brand new hammer ring that was inaugurated after the old Central hammer ring was torn down last week.  Conditions were dry and warm.
