We just wrote about Cade Antonucci a few days ago after he threw 232-10 in his first javelin competition in two years. But we’re going to do it again because the Auburn senior snapped his PR on Friday, throwing 241-0 at the Florida Relays in Gainesville.
Antonucci, a Holy Spirit graduate, broke his PR of 237-5, which he set at the 2019 Penn Relays.
Antonucci placed second to D.J. Johnson of Mississippi State, who won the competition with a 253-5.
Antonucci’s mark is No. 2 in Auburn history. Justin Carter held the school record for seven years, since he threw 239-7 at the 2014 SEC Championships in Lexington, Ky. Senior Nils Fischer, a transfer from Angelo State, broke Carter’s mark with a 241-9 at the Florida State Relays in Tallahassee, the same meet Antonucci threw 232-10.
Those two marks are now No. 1 and 2 in school history.
Antonucci threw 220-11 in high school when he won the 2017 Meet of Champions. He also threw the shot put 59-5 1/4 and the discus 169-1.
