Track & Field: Senior
Collins dominated the throwing events in the Division IV championships at Green Mountain Union H.S. on Friday, earning three state titles in four events. Collins began her day picking up five points with a tie for third in pole vault, then shifted to her specialties starting with a 96-foot, 6.5-inch throw to win the javelin by more than 8 feet, followed by a narrow shot put win, 29-8.25 to GMU sophomore Abigail Williams’ 29-1.25. The 4-year, 3-sport Rocket standout saved the best for last, leaving the field behind in the javelin. While six rivals threw between 69 and 86 feet, Collins’ javelin soard almost 20 feet beyond, coming down first at 104-6 — more than 10 feet farther than her 2017 title-winner.
