Clackamas High javelin record
In the April 16 edition of the Clackamas Review and Oregon City News, we reported that Clackamas junior Caroline Combs set a new school record in the girls javelin, launching the spear 123-10 at a dual meet with Canby.
In clarification, Clackamas High School has two school records for the girls javelin, one for the old high school javelin, and one for the international javelin, which was first used by high school athletes in 1999.
Combs does hold the school record for the international javelin.
Sherri Schoenborn holds the record using the old javelin, at 159-9, which she set in 1982, when she placed second at state.
Former Clackamas coach Bill Hartman brought Schoenborns accomplishments to our attention.
