MYRTLE BEACH - After nearly breaking the Coastal Carolina all-time javelin record several times last season, Jason Flanagan opened his senior campaign by checking that goal off the list as he threw for a CCU and CCU/Shamrock Invitational record 71.20m (233-11) on Friday at Doug Shaw Memorial Stadium.
Flanagan's record toss eclipsed that of former Coastal Carolina and Big South record holder Thomas Jordan's mark of 70.87m (232-6) set in 2004. Flanagan equals Winthrop's Jared Baird, who set the new conference standard at the UNF Osprey Spring Break Invitational on March 3, atop the Big South record book.
