Delsea graduate Elisia Lancaster, a junior at Towson, popped a weight throw PR of 61-4 to win the event at the Towson (Md.) Invitational.
Lancaster, a six-time All-America thrower on the JUCO level at Rowan College South Jersey, won by about eight inches over senior teammate Lauren Coleman, who threw 60-5 1/4.
Lancaster’s previous weight throw PR was 56-10 3/4 while competing for RC-SJ last February in a meet at Kutztown (Pa.) State.
Lancaster also took second in the shot put at 40-7 3/4, placing second to Coleman, who threw 49-4 1/2. Lancaster has an overall shot PR of 43-11 1/4 outdoors from a meet in 2018 at Penn State. Her indoor PR is 41-5 1/4 from the same meet last February at Kutztown.
On the CAA performance list, Lancaster ranks 4th this winter in the weight throw behind Erica Belvit of Northeastern (63-11 1/2), Michelle Obijaku of Towson (63-10 1/4) and Coleman (61-8 1/4).
Towson hasn’t updated its online media guide in five years, but through 2015 the school record in the weight throw was 59-8 1/4.
I went through each season of Towson women’s weight throw performances since then on Direct Athletics, and it appears Obijaku (64-10 last year), Coleman (61-8 1/4) and Lancaster (61-4) are the first three 60-footers in school history.
So apparently Lancaster is No. 3 on the all-time Towson indoor weight throw performance list. Which doesn’t exist.
Lancaster has a PR of 182-2 in the hammer throw, which obviously is only thrown outdoors. She threw that last April at Towson, before she attended Towson.
At Delsea, Lancaster was a sectional champ in the shot put and a sectional runner-up in the discus.
