Charbonneau Sets School Javelin Record

Ben Charbonneau, competing for Lake Superior State University, set another school record in the javelin last weekend throwing a personal best 59.24 metres at the Dick Small Invitational in Defiance Ohio.

Charbonneau, a College Notre Dame graduate and member of Sudbury's Track North Athletic Club, met the provisional qualifying standard for the NCAA Championships and is currently ranked 3rd in the NCAA Division II. His academic work this year has also earned him academic All-American honors.
