Del Mar resident Christopher White recently captured first place at the 2018 USA Track and Field Hershey National Junior Olympic Track and Field Championships with a javelin throw of 53.48 meters.

Competing in Greensboro, NC, Chris competed in three throwing events: shot, discus and javelin for 15/16 year old boys. Chris earned the ability to compete in all three events by winning javelin in qualifying San Diego/Imperial Association and Region 15 Regional meets and finishing in the top five for shot and discus.
