in the hammer throw
DEDHAM -- In her first outing of the 2010 outdoor season, senior
Julia Feltus (Reading, MA) of the Tufts women's track & field team
broke her own record in the hammer throw on Saturday at Northeastern
University's Husky Spring Open.
With a best launch of 148'6" (45.27m), Feltus was eight inches
further than her previous Tufts record of 147'10" (45.06m) set last year
at the NESCAC meet. She was eighth overall at Northeastern, first
among Division III competitors.
First-year thrower Kelly Allen (Norton, MA) also performed
well during a busy day. She was fourth in both the shot put and discus
throw. Her best discus effort of 134'8" (41.06m) was in the neighborhood
of the NCAA provisional qualifying mark and the Tufts record. She had a
best toss of 39'4" (11.99m) with the shot put ball. Allen also competed
in the hammer throw.
Four Tufts team members in all were in action at Northeastern, while
other Jumbos were in South Carolina at the Coastal Carolina Shamrock
Invitational. The Husky Spring Open was not scored.
