“Jesse Elvrom obviously likes his new pair of cleats.
Throwing the javelin in a brand new pair of spikes, the Yelm sophomore broke personal bests three consecutive times Friday [April 13], winning with a throw of 185 feet, 3 inches at the Mountain Invitational.
‘I just got new shoes today,’ said Elvrom, a sophomore who had been wearing football shoes. ‘They work pretty good.’
Elvrom was one of four Yelm athletes to finish first, helping the Tornados take second place at the 12-team meet. Kelso won with 143 points, Yelm had 90, and Shelton was third with 76.
Anthony Stadeker, Antoine Sims and Justin George all placed first in events for Yelm,” quoting The Olympian.
