Monsignor Donovan senior Alyssa Wilson flat-out DESTROYED her own state discus record in Glassboro Saturday night with a 182-foot BOMB at the Rowan Open.
Wilson’s previous state record was 175-1 set at last year’s Ocean County Championships at Central Regional in Bayville.
Wilson is probably better known for her shot put prowess. She threw 57-5 1/2 in the shot put this past winter at the Armory, a national indoor record and also a national absolute record – best ever indoors or outdoors.
But she’s off the charts in the discus as well!
Her mark Saturday night at Rowan is tied for No. 11 in U.S. history and best in the country this year.
Wilson also won the shot put at Rowan Saturday night with a throw of 54-3 3/4. Her outdoor PR is 55-9 1/4 from nationals last year. Her season best this spring is 54-4 from a meet at Middletown North last weekend.
Junior Najeaya Singleton of Vineland was second in both throws.
In the discus, she took second with a throw of 142-7, a personal-best. She threw 139-8 at the West Deptford Relays last year.
Singleton moves into the No. 2 spot in Cumberland County history behind only Sylvia Galarza of Millville, who threw 153-2 in 2004.
In the shot, she threw 40-9 1/2, a season-best. She threw 43-10 1/2 last spring.
