SAN DIEGO – For the second time this week, sophomore Molly Griep has broken North Dakota’s school shot put record.
Competing Saturday night at the UC San Diego Triton Invitational, Griep recorded a throw of 47 feet, 5 inches (14.45 meters). That mark enabled the Whitewater, Wis., native to eclipse the record of 46-6 she had set just this past Tuesday at Concordia.
Griep’s throw ranks fourth in the Big Sky Conference shot put rankings.
Griep also competed in the discus, topping out at 153-10 (46.88).
Teammate Ke-Ke Burks competed in both the discus and the hammer throw. The Madison, Wis., native placed second in her discus flight, hitting a throw of 148-07 (45.29). In the hammer, Burks recorded a throw of 180-08 (55.06).
UND is back in action next Saturday with split squads competing at the Steve Scott Invitational in Irvine, Calif., and the Ron Masanz Classic in Moorhead, Minn.
