It is with great sadness that we begin another high school season without the legendary coach Bob Gourley. For decades he has compiled weekly national lists for the hammer throw and weight throw. However he unfortunately passed away in October. His work played a pivotal role in developing the hammer throw in the US an we want to keep the project going. Below are the first lists of the indoor season. If you had additional results please email them to us and spread the word that we’re still up and running.
