NORWALK, Calif. -- Earlier this afternoon, senior Jean Lightfoot won the hammer throw at the Bryan Clay Invitational held at Cerritos College. Her mark of 183'9" is a new personal best and almost a meter farther than her farthest throw this season at 181'0" at the Ben Brown Invitational. Her farthest throw last season was at 175'0" at the Cal/Nevada Championships. Her mark moves her to the number three spot on the Gaucho's all-time list.
Lightfoot's performance was an incredible feat given the tough competition she was up against in the women's elite division.
The remainder of the Bryan Clay Invitational will take place tomorrow at the Cougar Athletic Stadium on Azusa Pacific's East Campus at 10 a.m.
