Isabelle Deal of Washington Township shatters her own Ursinus school record in the javelin!!!!!!

Isabelle Deal, an Ursinus junior from Washington Township, shattered her own school record in the javelin Friday at the Larry Ellis Invitational at Princeton.

Deal placed 3rd with a throw of 148-6, breaking her own Ursinus record of 144-10, which she threw at last year’s Larry Ellis Invite at the same facility.

Deal opened with a 133-7 before hitting 148-6 on her second throw. She finished with four more throws of at least 132 feet in a very consistent series – 135-6, 139-8, 132-3 and 136-10. She averaged 137-8 on her six throws.

According to the latest NCAA Division 3 performance list, Deal’s throw is No. 3 nationally behind Ava Nelson of Pacific Lutheran of Tacoma, Wash. (151-10 last month in a meet in Tacoma) and Chrissy Strickland of George Fox in Newberg, Ore. (151-0 last month in a meet in Newberg).

Deal’s previous best throw this year was a 134-2 last weekend in a meet at West Chester University’s Farrell Stadium, which is in both Westtown Township and East Bradford Township (but not in West Chester at all).
