It took Brielle Smith one throw to etch her name onto the all-time Stanford javelin top-10.

In her collegiate debut for Stanford, Oakcrest graduate Brielle Smith threw 157-5 at the Hornet Invitational in Sacramento. Smith won the event by 21 inches over teammate Virginia Miller, who threw 155-8. Miller has a 162-8 PR.

Smith hit 157-5 on the first collegiate throw. She also threw 154-10, 152-11 and 151-10 in her series.

Her mark is No. 10 in Stanford history, bumping 2015 All-America Victoria Smith for a spot in the top-10. Smith threw 156-5 at the 2015 NCAA Division 1 West Preliminary Round in Austin. 

Smith is the No. 8 freshman in NCAA Division 1, No. 23 overall in the country and No. 5 in the Pac-12.

This was Smith’s first meet since June of 2018, when she won the Meet of Champions at Northern Burlington with a throw of 157-0. Smith set the state New Jersey state mark of 168-6 with the new javelin in April 2019 at the Woodbury Relays.
