Hake Claims Ninth in Javelin at New England Championships

CAMBRIDGE, Mass. – Brianna Hake represented the Castleton women's track and field team at the New England Division III Championships on Saturday at MIT.

Hake continued her strong season in the javelin on Saturday, competing against the top competition from the region. She notched a top launch of 37.79 meters to place ninth overall out of 23 competitors in the event.

Hake shattered the program record one week ago at the North Atlantic Conference Championships with a heave of 40.98 meters. She won the individual conference title and elevated her rank to fourth overall in New England and 18th in the country.

Hake will wait to see if she has earned a bid for the NCAA Championships, which take the nation's top 22 performers in the javelin and are slated for May 24-26 at UW-La Crosse.
