ROBURY -- Innovation Academy senior Aidan Felty broke Massachusetts shot-put records once again on Friday.

Felty competed at the Boston Holiday Challenge at the Reggie Lewis Center, and on his third throw of the day he reached a mark of 67 feet to break his own state and New England indoor records.

He also extended his nation-leading mark by 5-and-a-half feet with the throw.

Before his 67-foot toss, Felty had a throw of 65-4 on Friday that at the time set state and New England indoor records.

Felty is a two-time MIAA Division 5 state champion for the Tyngsboro charter school.
