Mark Suminski opened up the invitational portion of his 2019 outdoor season in a big way this past weekend.
The Hershey senior threw 190-2 in the javelin to take the win at the Pennsylvania Track Classic at Plymouth-Whitemarsh. That topped his previous career best of 187-4, set at last summer's American JavFest. Suminski took over that state lead with that toss, as well.
"It felt really good," Suminski said of an early season PR. "Now it's just a matter of keeping my training up and continuing to work on speed work and strength."
Suminski noted the school record at Hershey is 199-11, so he says that 200 feet is certainly chief among his goals this season.
So what's the key?: "Consistency. Just sticking with what I've learned over the winter."
