Freshman Lauren Chambers (Kell, Marietta, GA) broke her own national class record in the weight throw on Sunday. After fouls in the first two rounds, Chambers managed to make finals by heaving a throw of 14.39 meters (47’02.50″) in the third round. She concluded with two more throws over 45 feet.
While Chambers has thrown farther this season, her personal best was thrown at an outdoor competition. Sunday’s mark was her indoor personal best and therefore met the qualifications for an indoor national class record. Her previous official national class record was set at 46’03.25″ in January.
