MYRTLE BEACH, S.C. -- Junior Shawn Johnson won the discus and landed a milestone mark in the shot put today as North Dakota wrapped up competition at the Shamrock Invitational, hosted by Coastal Carolina University.

Johnson won the discus with a throw of 51.27 meters (168 feet, 2 inches), logging the winning mark on his sixth throw. The Eveleth, Minn., native then recorded a lifetime best shot put mark of 17.35 meters (56 feet, 11 ¼ inches) that was also an NCAA qualifying mark. Johnson placed fourth in the event.
