Chicagoland Throw Series (IL) Results

As the nation’s best throwers gear up for international competitions in the coming weeks, many travelled to Chicago this weekend for a tune-up meet. And the results were spectacular: one national lead and two top-ten all-time marks. Competing amongst collegiate and post-collegiate throwers junior national champion Haley Showalter (Valor Christian, Highlands Ranch, CO) not only improved her national lead, but also broke her personal best and Colorado state record from last summer. Her best mark of 194’1″ also moved her up to seventh on the all-time national list. Courtney Jacobsen (Toll Gate, Warwick, RI) was the second best prep thrower at the meet. Alyssa Wilson (Donovan Catholic, Toms River, NJ) added six feet to her personal best to place third among the high school girls.

Seth Whitener (North Paulding, Dallas, GA) took second, and after coming off of his first 200 foot throw on Tuesday Michael Alvernaz (Barrington, RI) placed third.
