Maggie Ewen

NCAA DIVISION I WOMEN – Maggie Ewen, Arizona State

Junior | Throws
St. Francis, Minnesota
One record down: one more to go.
Maggie Ewen opened her outdoor season in a big way in front of her home crowd at the Baldy Castillo Invitational this past weekend.
Ewen shattered the American collegiate record in the hammer throw with a heave of 72.71m (238-6). Former Southern Illinois standout and two-time NCAA champion DeAnna Price held the previous record with a mark of 72.66m (238-4).
Prior to this past weekend, Ewen’s PR in the event was 70.50m (231-3) that she set at the NCAA West Regional last year.
The next record in Ewen’s sights is the overall collegiate record held by former Georgia standout Jenny Dahlgren (72.94m/239-3). Dahlgren’s record has stood for nearly 10 years.--USTFCCCA

Nancy Hobbs' story on the Chuckanut 50K

Welcome to the World of NCAA Record Keeping, Part II

Track and Field News added this twist to what the criteria can be for accepting a record in this tweet:

best hammer mark ever for American-born collegian: 238-6 (72.71) by Arizona State's Maggie Ewen. Makes her No. 8 on all-time U.S. list.

An addendum to all this is that Ewen was not supposed to compete in the meet. She was supposed to be rested this weekend HERE
