Double win and double PR in shot and disc for Williamstown’s Ciara Demarest at Delsea!!!!!

Big double for Williamstown junior Ciara Demarest at Delsea Tuesday night with personal bests and South Jersey No. 1 marks in both the shot and discus.

Competing at the Delsea Crusader Field No. 1 Invitational, Demarest won the shot put with a 41-¼ and the discus at 138-3. Both marks came on her final attempt of the competition.

She’s now No. 3 in New Jersey in the shot put behind Northern Valley-Demarest senior Casey Sullivan, who threw 45-8 at the Bergen County Championships in Old Tappan, earlier this month, and Columbia sophomore Madison Stevens, who threw 42-7 at the Essex County meet last week at Montclair, and she’s No. 2 in the state in the disc, behind only Union Catholic senior Jada Mia Puryear, who threw 139-1 at the Union County Championships in Berkeley Heights earlier this month.

In the discus, Demarest moved up to No. 8 in Gloucester County history with the best throw in nine years, and in the shot she’s No. 13 in county history.

She’s No. 2 in Williamstown history in both throws behind Typhanie Bates, who threw 44-2 ½ to win the 1995 state Group 3 meet and 140-6 a week earlier at sectionals. Bates went on to win the Meet of Champions in the shot that spring.

Demarest’s previous PRs were 40-0¾ at the South Jersey Elite meet at Delsea and 129-3 at the Woodbury Relays.

Demarest actually PR’d twice Tuesday in the shot put, hitting 40-1 ½ on her 5th throw before 40-0 ¾ on her final attempt. She had a near-PR 127-4 on her 4th attempt in the disc before bombing the 138-3 on her sixth attempt.
