Quotable: “I just did one event (for the Lithia meet) and focusing on the javelin helped. I’m most definitely pleased. I told my mom I was throwing 140 and I got close to it. It was just a matter of relaxing and knowing I can throw far. It was very important to me to do that before district and it felt really good.”
