Junior Nycia Ford competed in the hammer throw event Friday at the Spec Towns Invite in Athens, Georgia. She earned a personal best of 60.74 meters, which is over a meter of improvement from her last personal best.
Ford and sophomore Khayla Dawson were the only women from IU in attendance of this meet.
Ford exceeded expectations in her event. The Jeffersonville, Indiana, native earned second place, just behind Jeneva Stevens, a member of the New York athletic club.
Dawson competed in both the shot put event and the discus event on Saturday. In shot put, she earned third place with a distance of 16.59 meters. In discus, she earned eighth place with a distance of 46.55 meters.
