DE PERE – Brillion High School alumni Silas Petrie continued his successful junior season with the UW-Milwaukee track and field team.
On Saturday at the St. Norbert Invitational, Petrie broke the school hammer throw record with a toss of 59.91m (196-7) breaking the mark set by Nick Wichert in 2007. Wichert’s previous record was 59.25m (194-5).
Petrie finished first in the discus and hammer throw at the St. Norbert Invitational, as well as the 2016 Warrior Track & Field Invitational the week prior in Milwaukee.
Petrie was named Horizon League Field Athlete of the Week for the second time this season.
The first award came after Petrie won the discus competition in his first outdoor meet of the year, and set a then-best personal record in the competition.
