Congrats to the many MTC throwers competing in college who had great performances in their first meet of the indoor season. Lots of great throws.  Can't wait to see how far you'll go in February and March.
Good Luck on finals and enjoy your break.

KeKe Burks - University of North Dakota - breaks the school record in the WEIGHT THROW.

Also Jason Zahn - Ashland University - goes 55'+ in the shot - not bad for a discus thrower;)
Corinne Franz - DePaul University - breaks 40' in the shot for the first time - not bad for a discus thrower;)

Keep working hard!
