Huge javelin PR at Penn Relays for Rancocas Valley graduate and Monmouth freshman Danielle Steff!!!

Rancocas Valley graduate Danielle Steff, a Monmouth University freshman, threw a PR 156-0 in the javelin Thursday at the 124th annual Penn Relays. Steff placed eighth, surpassing her previous PR of 149-10.

Steff opened with a 138-5, 144-11 and foul but advanced to the final, where she opened with a 153-6 and then a 134-9 before notching the PR on her final attempt.

At R.V., Steff had a javelin PR of 139-0 at last year’s New Balance Nationals. She threw 133-1 at Penn last year in the high school javelin competition, so that’s an improvement of more than 23 feet from last year’s Penn Relays to this year’s.

Her previous PR of 149-10 came last weekend at the Virginia Challenge in Charlottesville, Va.

Steff’s 156-0 is third-best in Monmouth history.
