Only seventeen states allow Javelin as a field event in high school. Many other states such as Arizona are looking into adding the event.
Michael Landon held the javelin throw record in NJ.
If you throw javelin fairly far, and you are a girl on top of that, you are very likely to be recruited for college. The likelihood of achieving a full scholarship, however, for just javelin, is unlikely. I consistently threw in the high 120s in high school, and was recruited by many colleges. I ended up with a 3/4 scholarship to a very prestigious NCAA Division 1 school, but I think the fact that I knew how to throw discus and shot put also helped. If you are a girl and throw javelin, there's a high chance you'll get recruited. There aren't many states that throw javelin in high school, so the pool of colleges is rather large compared to the number of elite high school javelin throwers. My advice to you is to stick with it and focus on becoming better every day. Also, be open to all of the colleges recruiting you and build good relationships with each no matter what division they are. Some D3 programs are better than some at the D1 level and sometimes they can offer more "financial aid." Good luck! --Fellow Javelin Thrower
It depends how high you throw it, the farther up, the farther it sticks in, also depends on how muddy the ground is.
half the distance of your third throw

Im not sure about the rules for other states, but i know the state of never doesn't let the high schoolers throw the hammer. In High School, the only state that has the hammer throw is Rhode Island.
