She also had a strong mark of 38’1.5″ in the shot put. She has qualified for regionals in the javelin throw as well.

In other action, Polly Hardy and Krystal Barringer took part in the high hurdles portion of the heptathlon Monday. Hardy nearly matched her personal best after running a 13.58 in the event.
