Blessed to have taken 1st in the Shot and Discus in the District Finals today! More importantly, with a throw of 118-7 1/4, I broke a 30 year record at my school (as well as the District Record) originally set by Lauraence back in 1986 with a throw of 114-10! I finished the season just 6 inches short of the Shot goal but motivated to make the 8th grade records mine next year!
Today I improved my shot by 2 inches and my disc throw by 5.5 feet. I’m close to both school records now but will have to wait another week to try to break them. I added the full spin on both today so with some practice this next week I should be better by next Thursday. If I had thrown with the 8th graders I would have been 4th in both.
