Steff, Foering making S.J. javelin history for Rancocas Valley!!!!!

Junior Danielle Steff and Julianne Foering are forming quite a javelin tandem at Rancocas Valley.

And on Saturday, they enjoyed their best day yet as a duo.

Steff and Foering went 1-2 in the BCSL Liberty Division meet at Northern Burlington Saturday, Steff throwing 134-5 and Foering 133-7.

Both R.V. throwers destroyed the Liberty Division meet record for the new implement (since 2002), which was 124-5, set in 2002 by Aleyna Schaefer of Northern Burlington, and both also shattered the overall meet record with the new implement, which was 132-1, set in 2002 by Cinnaminson’s Faith Blamon.

The longest throw ever in Burlington County Scholastic League meet history was a 144-2 bomb by future Michigan All-America Lynlee Phillips of Shawnee with the old javelin back in 1999.

Steff and Foering are only the second South Jersey tandem to both throw 133-11 or better in the same meet, the first to do it as underclassmen.

Pennsville senior Megan Saxvanderweyden and Alyssa Whipkey did it several times last year, including at the Meet of Champions, where they finished 1-2 at 138-3 and 137-6.

Foering’s 133-7 was just four inches off her PR of 133-11 that she set at the Lenape Invitational in late April. Steff’s previous PR was 133-2, also at the Lenape Invite.

Let’s take a look at the top-10 performers in BCSL history with the new javelin:

Schrier, Steff and Foering rank No. 3, 5 and 6 in Burlington County history with the new implement so it could be a very competitive Burlington County Open Saturday at R.V.’s new track.
