Bingson & Melville Lead Way On Day 4 At USA Championships

6/28/2014
 

 

NYAC teammates Amanda Bingson (Manhattan, KS) and Miranda Melville (Rush, N.Y.) highlighted the action for New York members on Saturday at the USA Outdoor Track & Field Championships in Sacramento, Calf.   
 
Bingson, the american record holder in the hammer throw, won the event for the second consecutive year.  Her throw of 75.07m (246-3) was just 2 feet short of her record and the third best throw ever for a U.S. athlete (she now owns the top 4 throws in U.S. history).  “It means a lot to win a national championship. After winning last year, this is the first time I felt a little pressure to win again. It was really kind of nerve wracking. Now I’ll have to do it again next year and go for a three-peat.”
 
Melville took to the line for the 7:00am start time for the 20 km RaceWalk and finished with a time of 1:39:59.83 to earn the silver medal.  
 
Heather Miller (Woodbury, MN / Central Park TC New Balance) set 4 
event lifetime bests (high jump, 100 hurdles, 200m, 800m) on her way to placing 4th in the heptathlon.  Her overall score of 6100 points bested her previous lifetime best of 5985 from last year's championship in Des Moines; where she  placed fifth.

Competing in the hammer throw with Bingson were NYAC teamates Jeneva McCall (6th place - 68.78m/225-8) and Gwendolyn Berry (7th place - 68.74m/225-6).
