ANGELA BOUSHEA sets new STATE RECORD
On May 15, 2010 Angela Boushea, (Sr. Monona Grove High School)
set a new Wisconsin State Girls Shot Put record throw of 47'8".
Congrats on your huge throw, Madison Throws Club is proud of you!
Angela has worked hard on not only the technical pieces of both her discus and shot put technique but also the mental approach to competing. Her physical gifts have never been questioned, standing at 6' 0" and strong without working at it, she is an excellent 3-sport athlete. However, she has found that the challenges of throwing consistently and throwing far have a lot to do with how well you mentally approach practice and competition. We really worked hard on the ability to get focused into throwing far, with a pre-meet routine, and in meet strategies on responding to both good throws and bad throws.
I have been so impressed with her improvement in taking control of all the variables that are hers to control during her senior season. I think there is more to come for Angela in both the Shot Put and Discus this season and beyond. Next year she will be a UW Badger and I can see big things on her horizon, I think her best event might be the Hammer Throw...we'll see!
Continued good luck and success Angela!
