Throws News You Can Use 2021 summer edition by jim aikens

Dear Fellow Throws Enthusiast,     

I hope all of you had an enjoyable track season. Heck, it was just great to even have a track season this year! I know it was cut short due to the COVID 19 but at least we had a season. 

Looking at the throws competition at the trials it seems like the US is poised to do really well at the Olympics.    

This will be my last “Throws News You Can Use” newsletter. For those of you who don’t know, I have moved to Dallas, Texas “Y’all”, where I can focus on being a grandfather. Dan Mc Quaid from Wheaton North HS. and will be taking over the “Throws News You Can Use” newsletter. He’s a much better writer than me anyway!     I will miss coaching in Illinois and will miss coaching with and against many of you. I will miss the friendships we have developed over the years. As always, I am more than willing to help any of you in any way I can! Also, if any of you find your way to Dallas you better get in touch with me. My cell # is 847-414-8415. I plan on being back in Illinois for the ITCCCA Track & CC clinic in January. I hope to see many of you there.     

I know finding summer meets is an issue. I have attached the information regarding two summer meets that are taking place at Larkin High School in Elgin, Illinois this summer. The meet is only $5 per individual and unlimited events. They are on Thursday July 22nd & Thursday July 29th. Regarding throws, unfortunately they will only have shot put. My good friend Bob Borzack (former head coach girls coach Conant HS.) is now the boys head coach at Larkin HS. and is going to do a great job running these two meets.

Good Luck Everyone in all your Endeavors.      Jim
