South Portland's Daniel Guiliani had a record breaking junior campaign, and those record started with the very first meet of the season as Guiliani threw 65-6 to win the Vacation Invitational in his home circle at South Portland HS. The mark surpassed the former Maine state all-time best of 60-6 1/4 of Thornton Academy's Dan Smith. It moved Dan to #2 in New England history.
Guiliani wasn't down though as he would re-break his own all-time best mark with a huge 66-5 throw at a SMAA regular season meet ay Windham on May 19th. The mark earned him 6th best throw in the country this spring. He has the 3rd best returning throw in the country for 2016.
Dan would go undefeated throughout the season, in dominating fashion as he broke SMAA, Class A, & New England records along the way.
Guiliani's Shot Put results from 2015, not one winning throw below 61', which is further than anyone else has ever thrown in the state of Maine.
