RHS grad posts provisional javelin mark
Concordia University thrower Dalton Rasmussen started his freshman campaign by tossing a provisional qualifying mark in the javelin Saturday at the Saints Open track and field meet, hosted by Mt. Hood Community College in Gresham.
The 2018 Roseburg High School graduate won the men’s javelin with a throw of 205-2, which qualifies Rasmussen for the NCAA Division II Outdoor Track & Field Championships.
Rasmussen’s mark is currently the fourth farthest throw in the nation. It also places him eighth on Concordia’s top 10 list in the javelin and 17th in conference history.
Concordia will participate in the Lewis & Clark Open on Friday and Saturday.
