Orban Betters School Hammer Record At CSUN Invitational
March 16, 2008
Junior Eva Orban came within inches of beating her own school record in the hammer last week but left no doubt this time with a throw of 230-3 (70.18m) to better her USC record by over three and one-half feet today (March 15) at the Northridge Invitational in Northridge, Calif. Orban had established the USC standard in the hammer with a throw of 226-8 on May 27, 2006.
Also moving up the charts today was redshirt junior Corey White with a career-best throw of 235-5 to win the men's javelin competition. His mark is second best in USC history, trailing only Nils Fearnley's 244-8 set in 1985. White had thrown the javelin 220-10 on March 1 at the Trojan relays which was the third-best mark in school history. His previous best was 231-7 set in 2006 to win the Division III NCAA Championship.
Sophomore Shalina Clarke won the women's 100m high hurdles with a new PR of 13.42. That time betters her eighth-place standing on USC's all-time 100m HH list which had been 13.48 set on April 28, 2007.
