While Priscilla Frederick was competing against the NCAA’s top competitors in the high jump, St. John’s alumna Grace Zollman battled the world’s best at the Adidas Grand Prix at Icahn Stadium on Randall’s Island over the weekend.
Zollman placed ninth in the javelin with a top throw of 47.48 meters. Zollman was representing Central Park Track Club New Balance, which sent 10 athletes to the world-class event.
With an all-time best mark of 46.12 meters, Zollman holds the St. John’s record in the javelin throw. She was outdoor All-Big East and All-East in 2004 as a member of the Red Storm.
Zollman was an Olympic qualifier in 2008 and competed at the U.S. Nationals in 2010 and 2011, too.
