HUMBLE, Texas — Recent Ste. Genevieve High School graduate Marysa Flieg continues to impress on the national level.
Flieg recorded a throw of 41.95 meters for a silver medal in the women’s javelin throw at the Amateur Athletic Union Junior Olympics at Humble High School, which is a suburb of Houston.
Flieg’s third attempt was her best; she also had throws of 40.34, 37.61 and 38.47m.
Her second-best throw equaled 137-feet, 7-inches in standard measurement.
Ariel Pedigo, a scholastic thrower from Louisiana who has committed to the University of Oklahoma, was the winner with a mark of 143-5.
Shelby Sogaard, of Shawnee Mission Northwest High School in Kansas, was third with a mark of 41.59m.
Sogaard is entering her senior year of high school.
Rounding out the top-five were Olivia Norris from Fishers, Ind. (130-10, ) and Arianna White of Saint Rose, La. (129-6) — with both uncommitted on the collegiate level.
The national record in javelin remains 158-4, by Avionne Allgood, who graduated from Oklahoma in the mid-2010s.
Flieg has spent the summer competing for a track and field team based in Jefferson County — participating in meets in Oregon, Florida and here in Texas.
Last winter, Flieg signed an NCAA National Letter of Intent to throw for Division I Southeast Missouri State University, and she reports to the Cape Girardeau campus later this month.
