Williamstown’s Ciara Demarest opens season with indoor shot put PR, #8 all-time Gloucester County throw!!!!!!

Williamstown’s Ciara Demarest opened her senior year with an indoor shot put PR and the No. 8 throw in Gloucester County history.

Demarest threw 40-5 ½ at the SJTCA meet at the Toms River Intermediate East School adjacent to the Bubble, just beyond her indoor PR of 40-5 set when she won the South Jersey Group 4 sectionals last February. She went on to place 3rd at states and 5th at the Meet of Champions.

Her throw Monday is her second-best ever. She hit 41-0 ¼ last May at the Delsea Crusader Field #1 meet. She also surpassed 40 feet in four other meets, including the Meet of Champions, where she placed 7th.

Demarest’s throw is best by a Gloucester County girl indoors since Emily Hilt of Kingsway threw 40-8 ¾ at the 2017 state Group 4 meet. She’s closing in on the school record of 42-7 ¾ set by Typhanie Bates on her first throw at the 1995 state Group 3 meet at Princeton’s Jadwin Gym.
