Forza Athletics sponsored athlete Luis Rivera opened his 2016-17 season on Friday night, December 9th, 2016 at Houghton College. The 2016 DIII Indoor Weight Throw National Champion competed in his first post-collegiate meet, opening the season with a throw of 19.52m (64').
Luis opened the season a full meter farther than he did last year, as a college senior at Nazareth College. The goal for the meet was to open a meter farther than last year. We were successful in those regards. His big throw came in round 4 of the competition. His throw of 19.52m set the facility record, a record that Luis set last year as a college senior. Our plan is to next compete at the Buckeye Classic at Ohio State on Friday January 6th, 2017.
As always, thanks for reading!
