Throwing Toward the Future

Throwing Toward the Future
Connetquot High School track and field athlete Brittany Curtin recently broke the school record for the longest 20-pound weight throw, with a monumental distance of 50 feet, 2.75 inches.

Not only does Brittany now hold the school record, but she also holds the title of third-best throw in New York State and number 13 nationwide. Additionally, she is only the third girl in Suffolk County history to break the 50 feet barrier.

On Jan. 11, Brittany won the prestigious Millrose Games Trials and qualified to throw in the Millrose Games in February against the best throwers in the country.
     
She is currently weighing in her post-high school options and is aspiring to win the League and Suffolk County championships in the shot put event and the Suffolk County championship in the weight throw event.
