The boy’s national performance list got a big makeover in this week’s update. Collin Burkhart (Nazareth Area, Nazareth, PA) extended his national lead, while Jeremiah Nubbe (Rainier, WA) moved up to second and five of the top six throwers in the nation improved.
More marks have been added to the national performance list as the young outdoor season gets underway.
The first outdoor national performances lists have been release and Collin Burkhart (Nazareth Area, Nazareth, PA) and Cara Salsberry (Somerset Canyons, Palm Beach, FL) lead the way. Burkhart won last weekend’s NSAF USA Meet of Champions, while Salsberry has already added nearly 20 feet to her personal best this outdoor season.
The indoor season is finished in many states, but the marks keep coming in. On this week’s national performance list Aiden Paul (West Albany, Albany, OR) added nearly four feet to his best to jump up to third in the nation on the boy’s side.
As the indoor season starts to wind down, there were few changes on this week’s national performance list.
The big movers on this week’s national performance list were both from Ohio. Tomas Rimac (Brundwick, OH) jumped up to seventh with his personal best to win the OATCCC Indoor Championships, while Elizabeth Metz (Beachwood, OH) moved up to eighth in the nation.
Logan Coles (Woonsocket, RI) continued his hot streak this week. His winning mark at the Adidas Indoor Nationals once again improved the national lead. All of the top four boys in the nation improved last week, including six of the top ten throwers as well. On the girl’s side Cara Salsberry (Marvin Ridge, Waxhaw, NC) was the top mover, making her indoor season debut in seventh position.
Another week and another new national lead for Logan Coles (Woonsocket, RI). His improvement at the RITCA Last Chance Meet leads the way in the latest national performance lists.
Big changes took place on both the boys and girls national performance lists, with two new national leaders, and four improvements among the top seven on each list. Leading the way were new nationals leads from Logan Coles (Woonsocket, RI) at the Rhode Island Class Championships, and Natalia Surdej (Lancaster, NY) at the Youngstown State High School Meet 3.
