2010 runner-up Mariame Fadiga (West Windsor-Plainsboro South) leads seven ladies seeded over 100 feet. Chanel Johnson’s meet record of 130’ 3” looks to be safe, however, last year’s sixth place throw of 92 feet currently sits 12th on the performance list going into the meet. Rancocas Valley brings good blood in Lauren Mirabelli!
In one of the deepest events in the field, it may take a meet record to medal in this event! Connor Thompson of Father Judge (PA) won the inaugural meet establishing the record at 157’ 5”. Eight boys bring in seeds of over 150 feet – with four over 160 – led by Christian Spaulding of Middletown South.
Defending champion Mariame Fadiga of West Windsor-Plainsboro South once again leads the way with a personal best of over 40 feet!! Robbinsville’s girls circle extends just over 40 feet. Stop by and look for Mariame to hit the wall! A tight field of eight girls between 36 and 37 feet and change should make for a great battle for some hardware!
Corey Abernathy’s (West Windsor-Plainsboro North) meet record of 56’ 5” looks to be in danger. Sam Snyder of Hopewell Valley leads the field with a personal best of 58’ 10”. Three boys bring in personal bests of 55 feet or better. The top seeded flight starts at 46 feet!
In 2011 eleven ladies come in with a personal best that would have made the medal stand last year. Ten 100+ throwers will make for some great competition to attend that same awards ceremony this year. Those ladies are led by Amber Brown of South Brunswick who brings a personal best of 122’ 9”.
Barring a monsoon, blizzard, skeet-shooting convention, or large brick wall; Abernathy’s meet record of 155’ 9” is in its final days. Three “boys” (big dudes) bring in personal bests of over 170 feet! They are led by Sam Mattis (East Brunswick). Sam is coming off a runner-up finish in the Championship Discus Throw at the Penn Relays where he tossed the dish a remarkable 201’ 2”. Sam currently holds the third best throw in the NATION, trailing National Leader Ma’a Brown of Paramount High (CA) by only two inches!!! Dominick Padovano of South Brunswick (171’ 9”) and Snyder of Hopewell Valley (170’ 8”) bring the fourth and sixth best throws in New Jersey this year to Robbinsville High. This event looks to be the highlight of some great competition in the field
Come out to Robbinsville High on Saturday May 7th to see some great competition as our guys and girls THROW STUFF!!!
