Brown takes third at NCAA meet
June 17, 2004
It came down to the last throw of the competition, but when Baldwin High grad Eric Brown let it loose Saturday in the NCAA Track and Field Championships, he had a school record javelin toss for the University of Arkansas and his third-place finish helped the Razorbacks win the team title. “It felt very good,” Brown said of his 246-3 toss which broke the old Razorback mark of 241-11 that had stood since 1990. “That’s something I’ve been wanting to do all year. When I came here as a freshman, I had that in mind. But after last year, when things didn’t go so well, my goal was to throw 230 this year. I got that my first meet. I knew I could get it out there. “I saved it for my last throw, which is kind of what I do,” he said.
