Results for the Weekend of 1/23/10

UPDATE: On Sunday, Steffen Nerdal (Memphis) improved his nation-leading mark to 22.81m. That mark ads a foot to both his season best and personal best.According to the school's press release Memphis head Coach Kevin Robinson said "He is under a significant training load and I hate to even try to estimate where he will be at come NCAA Championship time. He is on fire and he is dominating everything he does right now. When he peaks, barring injuries, he is going to be amazing." Nerdal added that "It is really exciting to be at this point and I am way ahead of where I thought I would be at this point,” Nerdal said. “Obviously, a personal record in January is amazing. It is comforting to get a good mark this early in the season. I went home to Norway for four weeks to train over Christmas break. I was able to train well and work on the explosive stuff and I am always trying to get faster and stronger. I guess that training paid off today. I am still playing around with the weight and we will get serious with that closer to the NCAA Championships."

Walter Henning (LSU) threw the NCAA automatic qualifying mark in his first meet of the season on Friday.  You can watch the throw here.  NCAA outdoor champion Marcel Lomnicky (Virginia Tech) also opened up his season over the weekend, throwing a personal best of 21.24m.  Lomnicky's previous best was 20.99m at last year's NCAA indoor championships.  John Freeman (Georgia) also threw a new best for the second straight weekend.

Jeneva McCall (Southern Illinois), last week's CollegeHammer.com Athlete of the Week, continues to impress the country.  She improved her personal best two feet last week and added another two feet this week.  Her new best of 21.34m was the top mark in the country this weekend, better than both D'Ana McCarty and Jere' Summers from Louisville.

In addition to collegiate results, I've also compiled some of the best post-collegiate results from the weekend.
