Ashe shatters national record at New Balance Nationals; soph Winkler improves for boy’s win

After throwing over the national record several times this season in outdoor competitions, Shelby Ashe (St. Pius X, Atlanta, GA) finally upped her national record on Sunday at the New Balance Indoor Nationals. Outdoor competitions are not officially used for indoor records, so while Ashe has been throwing very well this season, her national record from last season remained unchanged. Then, after a first round foulu sing three turns, she reset her record in the second round using her standard two turn technique and improved it again to 68-02.50 in the fourth round. Three of her throws surpassed the old official record of 65-04.25 set at last year’s edition of the meet. Throughout her high school career, Ashe has added more than six feet to the national record. In talking with media after the competition, Ashe said “After [second round record] it was just fun. Honestly there was no pressure. I really have a problem with over-thinking and analyzing things but after I got that first one out I could just let it rip.”

Behind Ashe was fellow Georgia thrower Diana Levy (Kennesaw Mountain, Kennesaw, GA), who took second with a throw of 60-02.50. Juianna Williams (South Paulding, Douglasville, GA), who has also broken 60 feet this season, took third place for a podium sweep by the Throw1Deep club.

On the boy’s side, sophomore Rudy Winkler (Averill Park, NY) built upon his success from last weekend to take home the title. Winkler was the surprise winner at last week’s Weightarama competition in Rhode Island with a two foot personal best. He added another two and a half feet to his best to win at New Balance Nationals. His first round attempt was already a personal best and enough for the win, and he proceeded to add another half inch in his final attempt to finish with 74-02.25. Chukwuebuke Enekwechi (Francis Lewis, Fresh Meadows, NY) also threw a personal best of nearly three feet for second place. Ben Glauser (Athens Academy, Athens, GA) placed third, with Joe Velez (Classical, Providence, RI) and Andrew Dunkleberger (Whitfield Academy, Mableton, GA) also surpassed 70 feet.
