Congratulations to Haley Crouser, a junior at Gresham (Ore.), who set a U.S. high school record when she threw the javelin 181 feet, 2 inches on her second attempt at the Aloha Relays on Friday.
Haley joins her brother Sam (255-4 in 2010) in the record book, where the duo became the only brother-sister combination in history. Throw in cousin Ryan, who broke the indoor shot put and discus records last year, and it’s easy to see why the Crousers have become America’s First Family of Throwing.
“Since Sam has (the record) and I have it, it’s just an unreal feeling,” Haley said. “When I was younger I would have never expected this to happen.”
