Sonja Campbell and had a “breakthrough weekend,” according to Montville coach Joel Finnegan.

Campbell won the shotput with a toss of 39-4 on Friday, which qualified her for the national high school championships in June.

The throw also set a school record, taking down a record held by Nikkia Smith and, according to Finnegan, was the second-best performance in any class in the state this year.

“She’s in a very, very good place at the end of April,” Finnegan said.

“I’m a little surprised. We know she’s a talented kid. There’s a lot there, and I felt we could get here. I just didn’t think we would be here at the end of April. Now, we re-adjust our goals for the rest of the season.”
