HUMBOLDT Javelin retirement is not on Tucker Hursts 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 17306.
At the moment, Hurst doesnt 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.
