Other standout performers from last weekend include fellow sophomore Briana O’Grady, who broke into the top-five on the program’s all-time performance list in the weight throw. O’Grady threw a personal-best mark of 48’ 11” (14.91m) in the event.

In the women’s high jump, junior Megan Kirschling finished third overall in the event after clearing the bar at 5’ 5.75” (1.67m).
