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
