SATURDAY AT NIN
Winners Table - Saturday Results
Boys Pole Vault - Scott Roth CA wins on a rare fourth attempt at 17-4.25, setting a new NIN meet record (Tommy Skipper 17-3.75 in 2003). When Roth missed on his third attempt, Michael Morrison VA and Jordan Scott GA were preparing for a jumpoff for first. But the officials ruled that the standards were set incorrectly (different depths, making the cross bar crooked) and awarded Roth a fourth attempt. He soared over cleanly. Roth then missed three times at a national record 17-7.
Weight Throw - Walter Henning USR
St.Anthony's NY jr Walter Henning 83-0.25 broke the national record (Lief Arrhenius UT 82-10 at Simplot in 2004) on his first throw and followed with three more throws over 80 feet.
