Qualifiers for the prestigious Millrose Games took place on Wednesday with the top two placers moving on to the final meet in Febraury. In the boy’s competition Cameron Thompson (Lakeland/Panas, Cortlandt, NY) was the clear winner with a personal best of 19.81 meters (65’0″). Andrew Rochon (Southern Lehigh, Central Valley, PA) took second. In the firls competition Monae Cooper (New Rochelle, NY) and Jessica Molina (Westwood, Township of Washington, NJ) were the clear qualifiers. Molina led the competition early with a season’s best before tossed 16.89 meters (55’5″) in the third round. That mark added more than three feet to her season’s best and moves her up to third in the nation. But more importantly it held on for the win.
