Rutgers Camden’s Emily Hilt from Kingsway pops #4 hammer throw in NCAA Division 3!!!!!!

Another hanmmer PR for Rutgers-Camden senior Emily Hilt, one of the top throwers in NCAA Division 3.

Hilt, a Kingsway graduate, threw 178-3 (twice) Friday at the Osprey Open in Galloway Township. She hit her previous PR of 178-1 at a meet at Widener two weeks ago.

She improved on her No. 4 ranking in Division 3, only 10 inches behind No. 3 Brooke Buckhannon of Baldwin Wallace.

Hilt had a lifetime best of 172-0 coming into this season from a meet last May in New Haven, Conn. She didn’t throw the hammer as a freshman, and her PR as a sophomore was 155-1, so this is the start of only her third season specializing in the hammer.

Hilt had a very consistent series Friday in poor conditions, with throws of 178-3, 173-1, 167-2, 168-10, 167 and a second 178-3.

She averaged 172-1 on her six throws, good enough to rank among the top 10 throwers in Division 3.
