National Scholastic Indoor Championships (NY)

In his first weight throw competition ever, junior Conor McCullough (Chaminade, West Hills, CA) set a new national record in the weight throw on Sunday to win the National Scholastic Indoor Championships. Last season, McCullough ranked second in the hammer throw with a sophomore record toss of 243’11”. Prior to Sunday, McCullough had never thrown a weight in competition. However, that did not stop him from throwing a national record of 87’10.75″. The throw eclipsed Walter Henning’s (St. Anthony’s, South Huntington, NY) national record of 86’05.50″ thrown at the same meet last year. It also broke the north american high school record of 87’05.00″ set by Dylan Armstrong (Kamloops, BC, Canada) set back in 1999. Second place at the competition went to former national leader Wes Wright (Villa Rica, GA).

Victoria Flowers (Classical, Providence, RI) almost made it two national records in one meet. Flowers won the girl’s competition on Sunday morning with a throw that was just 1.5″ off of her own national record. She will end the season as the national record holder and most consistent women’s thrower in high school history. Patrice Gates (Villa Rica, CA) took second, with Lauren Chambers (Kell, Marietta, GA) in third.

Weightarama 2008 (RI)

Patrick Onye (Classical, Providence, RI ) set a new meet record at Weightarama 2008 this past weekend. Onye was just inches away from setting a new personal best and easily won the boy’s competition. Mike Gama (Bishop Hendricken, Warwick, RI) placed second with an impressive three foot personal best. Not only did Gama move up to third on the national list, he also eclipsed 70 feet for the first time.

Victoria Flowers (Classical, Providence, RI) was also in good form once again. She won the competition by over seven feet with a toss of 59’04.00″, which also set a meet record. Bethany Karter-O’Brien (Waterville, ME) also set a big personal best for second place.

In the boy’s 35-pound weight throw, yet another meet record was set by Patrick Onye. This time, Onye surpassed his own record set last year. He ended up setting a new personal best of 58’08.50″.

IAAF World Youth Championships

After leading qualifiers yesterday with a personal best effort, Conor McCullough emerged as a favorite for today’s final, eventually placing fourth. The final started out rocky for McCullough who fouled his first two attempts. He moved into fourth on his third attempt and secured three more throws. While he improved in the fourth and fifth rounds, McCullough remained in fourth through the rest of the meet. Andriy Martynyuk, the world youth leader, won a close competition in which the top five finishers were separated by little more than five feet. Martynyuk finished with a best of 76.09 meters while McCullough finished at 74.54 meters.

USATF Junior National Championships (IN)

Another meet and another record for Walter Henning. Henning set a new national junior record with the 6kg hammer at this year’s USATF Junior National Championships at IUPUI in Indianapolis, Indiana. Henning had a very consistent series with a best throw of 73.59m (241’05”) on his fifth attempt. Henning set the previous record last season with a toss of 238’02”.

The USATF Junior Championships is open to any athlete who will not reach the age of 20 during the 2007 calendar year. As such, several college freshman took part in the competition. Former high school standout Emily Bernhardt won the girl’s competition. Senior Gabby Midles (Camas, WA), however, came close to the fin on her final throw by moving from fifth to second place and setting a new personal best in the process.
