Oakcrest’s Brielle Smith demolishes state javelin record, moves into all-time U.S. top-15!!!!!

Brielle Smith destroyed her the New Jersey state javelin record Saturday with a 168-6 at the Woodbury Relays.

Smith, a senior at Oakcrest, broke her own Atlantic County, South Jersey and state mark of 163-8, which she threw last year at the Meet of Champions.

Her mark is No. 1 in the nation this year according to the MileSplit database and it appears to be No. 12 all-time, although it’s difficult to tell for sure because of incorrect marks in the database.

Smith now has a nearly eight-foot lead over any other thrower in New Jersey history with the new javelin implement (since 2002). Maria Jimenez of Vineland threw 160-8 at the 2012 Cape-Atlantic Championships.

Jimenez also held the previous meet record of 153-6, also set in 2012.

According to the IAAF tables, Smith’s mark makes her the No. 4 18-and-under athlete in the world this year and the No. 1 U.S. junior and No. 15 U.S. woman.
