Egg Harbor graduate Darren Wan, now a junior at Stockton University, broke a 35-year-old school record in the weight throw this weekend with a 58-0 1/4 at the Fastrack National Invite at Ocean Breeze.
The previous school record was held by legendary Holy Spirit graduate Mike Mielke, who threw 57-11 3/4 for Stockton in 1985.
Wan placed second to post-collegiate Marcus Disbrew, who threw 59-7 3/4.
Wan hit the 58-0 1/4 on his second of four throws. His previous PR was a 55-5 1/2 at a meet in Lancaster, Pa., last month.
Wan spent his freshman year at Rutgers, sat out the 2018 season, and first competed at Stockton last winter.
At EHT, Wan threw 53-8 1/2 in the shot and 173-2 in the disc.
