Personal record breaking was the main item on the menu with a number of Bruins — boys and girls — setting PRs in various events.
“Brandi Rodgers set a PR in discus with a huge toss,” throwing and distance coach Terry Axel said. “Then after running the 800-meter run, she came back and threw a PR in the javelin.”
According to Rodgers, her first throw was bad — 75 feet — and then she came back from the 800-meter run and scratched her second throw.
“It was pretty exciting,” Rodgers said. “I had never run the 800 before and so I was afraid I would be a little tired and I got nervous and scratched my second throw. I asked coach if he wanted me to do a little five-step approach to get a good throw and he said, ‘no, just go and throw.’ I did, and it worked.”
