New Balance Indoor Nationals (NY) Championship Division Results

Pre-meet favorite Gabby Figueroa (Austintown Fitch, Youngstown, OH) took home the win, but not without a fight. Nyla Woods (Henry W. Grady, Atlanta, GA) threw a big indoor personal best in the first round and nearly toped in on her third attempt. Entering the finals Woods was leading the competition, however immediately Figueroa improved and captured a two-foot lead. That was enough to win as Woods only managed those two legals throw.

Woods’s mark was nearly an eight foot indoor season’s best, however she has not competed much indoors this year. Last week she showed signs of great form as she broke 60 feet outdoors for the first time and her first throw made her just the second athlete this season to break the barrier indoors. But that almost was not enough to keep second place as a late charge by Mohogany Baker (Berry Academy of Tech., Charlotte, NC) brought her a four foot personal best in the final round that landed just inches short of Woods. Sabrina Gaitan (Sprayberry, Marietta, GA) finished in fourth with an indoor season’s best and Kamyrn Brinson (Marist, Atlanta, GA) placed fifth, giving the Throw1Deep Club another strong showing with three of the top five finishers. The one down side for the team was a subpar performance by Kelli Thomas (Luella, Locust Grove, GA) who entered the meet as a strong medal favorite but placed 20th after having foul trouble. Thankfully the outdoor season is starting soon and gives everyone a clean slate.

In the boys competition, Adam Kelly (Barrington, RI) and Daniel Haugh (St. Pius X, Atlanta, GA) promised a great competition and they delivered. Both entered the meet undefeated this year, but only one could leave that way and that was Kelly. Kelly let from start to finish and his second round held on to win. Haugh struggled with fouls at the start, but was able to slowly work his way back. However he ended up six inches short of Kelly.

Logan Bryer (Genoa Area, OH) finished fourth in the shot put on Saturday and added a third place weight throw finish today. Kenneth Brinson (Marist, Atlanta, GA) jumped from seventh to fourth in the fifth round and held on there for the final round. Jeremy Franklin (Serra Gardena, CA) threw a big personal best after traveling from coast to coast. His first throw over 70-feet ever earned him fifth place.
