Two days after a huge PR and all-time U.S. #17, Jessica Woodard records huge win and near-PR in Tucson!!!

Two days after she PR’d with a throw of 62-3 3/4, Jessica Woodard followed up with the second-best throw of her life.

Woodard, who threw a lifetime-best 62-3 3/4 at the Tucson Elite Classic at the University of Arizona’s Roy Drachman Stadium in Tucson on Friday, won the USATF Throws Fest at the same venue with a throw of 61-10 1/4.

Woodard’s previous PR was a 61-3 1/4 from 2018, so she’s now uncorked the two biggest throws of her life in the past three days.

The Marlton native and Cherokee garduate already ranks 9th in the world and No. 4 among U.S. women with her 62-3 3/4 at the same venue three days ago. She’s No. 17 in U.S. history.

Woodard had just four lifetime 60-foot throws before this month, but she now has four in the last three days and a total of seven this month, including two 60-footers in each of her last three meets.
