Douglas High School sophomore Mackenzii Phillips traveled to the ALTIS Training Facility in Phoenix, Arizona, to participate in Project Javelin Gold Throwers Camp.
The four-day clinic earlier this month featured 2016 Olympic gold medalist Thomas Roehler, of Germany, and fellow German Olympiad Raymond Hecht as the coaches for a group of young U.S. throwers.
"As a school we are thrilled that she will be able to experience such a great opportunity," Douglas principal Brenyl Swanson said.
As a freshman, Phillips won the 4A state title in the javelin with a throw of 135-7, becoming the first Douglas girl to win the state championship in the event.
Phillips also plays volleyball and basketball for the Trojans.
