ca135d19-b571-40dd-b48f-77d69dd70463Collegiate freshman and former Rhode Island prep throwers Charlie Ionata and Clarence Gallop captured first and second place in the men’s hammer at the final day of the USATF Junior Championships. After an exciting women’s competition on Saturday, the men’s competition started with a bang. Ionata, now throwing for Wake Forest University, opened the competition with a new 6-kilogram best of 67.70 meters. Gallop, throwing for Charleston Southern University, came within one inch of Ionata in the second round, but was unable to overtake him in his remaining efforts. The top high school thrower was Colin Minor (South Brunswick, Southport, NC) who finished in third. By placing in the top two and achieving the World Junior Championships qualifying standard of 67.50 meters, both Ionata and Gallop also get to return to Eugene in two weeks to go head-to-head with the world’s best.
