Holy Spirit’s Antonucci becomes fifth member of the 200-foot javelin club

Just a few days ago, we brought you details of Cade Antonucci’s ridiculous performance at the South Jersey Invitational. Two firsts and a second.

This one might be even better.

Antonucci became the fifth 200-footer in South Jersey history with the new javelin implement Thursday when he threw 200-8 to win the Atlantic County meet at Buena.

That’s the No. 1 mark in New Jersey this year and a nearly 13-foot PR from his 187-9 at the Bridgeton Relays.

Antonucci broke the Atlantic County record of 187-11, set in 2009 by Pleasantville’s Javier Garcia when he was second at the state Group 2 meet in South Plainfield. Antonucci won by more than 14 feet over Terrance Smith of Oakcrest, who was second with a 186-7.

Antonucci opened with a 187-11 and popped his 200-8 on his second throw. He fouled on his third attempt of the trials and first two throws in the finals before finishing with a 177-8.

Antonucci also won the shot put with a 55-11, one foot short of his 56-11 PR from the South Jersey Invite. He was fifth in the discus.
