Oakcrest soph Brielle Smith bombs her way to #6 all-time in South Jersey history in the javelin at Rowan!!!!!

Oakcrest sophomore Brielle Smith bombed her way into the all-time South Jersey top 10 in the javelin Saturday night with a 145-foot heave at the Rowan Invitational.

Smith’s previous PR was a 135-1 when she won the state Group 2 meet last year. Her best throw this year had been a 134-6 at the Woodbury Relays.

Her throw is best by a New Jersey sophomore since Haddonfield’s Katherine Johnston threw 152-2 at the Haddonfield Invitational in 2010.

It’s the No. 2 mark in Atlantic County history behind only a 152-4 by Egg Harbor’s Jill Shanner for third place at the 2009 Nike Outdoor Nationals.
