White Climbs Rankings With Season-Best In Nebraska
LINCOLN, Neb. -- Washington had a trio of weight throwers start the weekend off in Lincoln, Neb. on Friday evening at the Frank Sevigne Husker Invitational. Jayden White, Connor Jost, and Beatrice Asomaning all had strong series, with Asomaning setting a PR, White getting a season-best, and Jost earning the second-best mark of his career.
White's best toss of the day was good for second overall at 71-4 1/4, and was just four inches away from his school record personal-best. It moves him up to 10th in the NCAA this season, with every thrower above him on the list a senior or junior.
Jost was fourth at 69-8, coming on his sixth and final throw. That would have been a huge PR as of ten days ago, were it not for the huge day Jost had at the UW Invitational last weekend, going 70-6 1/2. Still this was the second meet in a row over 21-meters for the senior.
Asomaning set a new PR for the second week in a row, going 62-9 1/2, also coming on her sixth attempt, and once again improving her own mark at No. 4 in school history.
More throwing action takes place in Nebraska on Saturday, with a few Husky sprinters in action in Spokane at the WSU Invitational on Saturday.
