Winslow junior John Purvis extends PR and S.J. #1 discus throw at Olympic Conference meet!!!!!

Winslow junior John Purvis PR’d again this week, popping a 168-9 discus throw at the Olympic Conference Championships at Washington Township.

That added 2 1/2 feet to his PR of 167-1 that he just set two weeks earlier at the South Jersey Invitational at Delsea.

Purvis’s throw is No. 1 in South Jersey this year and No. 5 in the state, No. 2 by a junior behind Chris Tavarone of Morris Knolls, who has thrown 173-3. It’s the best by a junior at the Olympic Conference Championships in at least a decade.

The conference title is the first for Purvis. He placed second twice in the shot put.

Purvis opened with a 157-8 throw, then followed with a near-PR 166-9 before hitting the 168-9 on his third attempt. He fouled on his fourth and final throw.
