Results for the Weekend of 4/7/12

Published by

The outdoor season really started to heat up last weekend. The biggest throw of the weekend came from Jessica Cosby. The four-time US champion threw a personal best of 73.71m. That mark is the second best throw ever by an American, just six inches behind Erin Gilreath's American record of 73.87m from back in 2005. Among the pro men, A.G. Kruger threw 74 meters again, but recent Virginia Tech grad and 2012 NCAA indoor champion Marcel Lomnicky started his outdoor season with a personal best of 77.43m in Florida. Lomnicky competes for Slovakia and will likely need just a few more feet to reach the Olympic A-standard and qualify for London.

In the college ranks, NCAA leader Conor McCullough (Princeton) threw a big personal best of 74.01m (242-10). By my count he is now the sixth American with the Olympic B-standard. He also has dual citizenship with Ireland and is the only Irish thrower with the standard. Defending NCAA outdoor champion Alexander Ziegler (Virginia Tech) started his season with a throw of 71.88m. One of the more impressive marks was a throw of 66.26m by little-known junior college thrower Remy Conatser in California. That is his second throw over 65 meters this year for the former volleyball player. Jeneva McCall (Southern Illinois) turned in the best women's mark again, but Amanda Bingson (UCLA) was close behind as she starts to find her form outdoors.

Please note the cutoff marks will be changed next week as more throwers are starting their seasons.
