HUMBOLDT — Javelin retirement is not on Tucker Hurst’s radar quite yet. The recent Humboldt graduate placed second at the Sunflower State Games in Topeka this past Saturday. 

Hurst is coming off a phenomenal senior track season, taking second in state for the javelin with a throw of 173’06”. 

At the moment, Hurst doesn’t have a future lined up to throw javelin in college. In fact, he expects to attend the Electrical Power Technology — Lineman Training offered by Pratt Community College in cooperation with Coffeyville Community College. But Hurst still toys with the idea of throwing the javelin at a higher level, explaining why he made the trip to Topeka. Since his last meet as a Cub, Hurst has had a hard time realizing his career at Humboldt High is over, most importantly, his days of competing at javelin.
