After a huge junior season, Dunmore's Gavin Darcy is back and ready for a big senior season. The Penn State recruit stepped his game up in a big way last season, throwing over 200 feet on four occasions. He won a AA state title and placed third at nationals.

Darcy will be tough to beat with his consistency this season, and we should expect some more big throws from him this spring.

Ethan Dabbs of Richland also had a strong season last year. Dabbs, who threw over 200 feet as a sophomore came close a few times last year and took second to Darcy in AA at states. Dabbs will certainly give Darcy a run in AA this season in a matchup to watch for.

Danville Area's Jared Mowery (third), Northern Cambria's John Paronish (fifth), and Hopewell's Noah Drudy (eighth) are other returning medalists from last spring. Mowery posted a big PR of 191-08 at states and will look to continue that into this season. Montoursville's Josh Dinges was 11th at states, but he did unleash a best of 197-1 last season. He'll be worth watching for this spring.


Penn Manor's Alexander Scheivert is the top returner in AAA. The senior was very consistent last season, throwing over 190 feet in his last four meets of the spring. He won the L-L League with a best of 198-4, and then took second at states to champion Hayden Fox.

Wyoming Area's Marc Minichello didn't compete at districts or states last year, but returned for nationals, where he threw a huge PR of 197-5 for seventh. He'll definitely be a factor this spring. Daniel Jacobs of Elizabeth Forward and Lucas Stage of Scranton Preparatory are among the returning medalists in AAA and both will look to move up the medal stand this season.

Check out the top 500 returners in the boys javelin and check out an interview with Darcy after winning the AAA state title last spring:
