Bryanna Craig PRs in javelin – her 4th PR of the weekend – and closes in on 5,000-point heptathlon plateau at U.S. Under-20 Championships!!!!!

Bryanna Craig recorded her fourth PR in six events Sunday when she threw the javelin 114-9 at the USATF Under-20 Championships in Miramar, Fla.

Craig, who PR’d in the high hurdles, high jump and 200 on Saturday, had a previous-best of 114-4 in the javelin from last week’s New Balance Nationals in Greensboro, N.C.

With the 114-9, the Millville freshman added 571 points to her two-day total, giving her 4,305 with the 800 remaining later this afternoon.

Her 114-9 was the best of the competition. It’s the No. 5 throw in the state this year by a freshman.

Craig needs 654 points in the 800 to break the U.S. high school freshman record of 4,958 that she set last weekend at New Balance. She needs 695 to reach 5,000 points.

She needs to run 2:33.18 to break her own national record, and she needs to run 2:29.87 to reach 5,000 points.

Craig ran 2:21.44 at New Balance and 2:23.35 at Arcadia in her only previous 800.

Craig has PR’d in the 100-meter hurdles (14.49), high jump (5-8), 200 (25.24) and javelin. The only events she hasn’t PR’d in are the shot put, where she threw within 1 1/2 inches of her PR, and the long jump.
