Etter Takes 12th in USA Discus Final

June 19, 2003

STANFORD, Calif. -

Two-time All-American Mary Etter wrapped up her career for the Ducks with her second discus appearance in the USA Championship in opening day action at Stanford's Cobb Track and Angell Field.

The Everett, Wash., native placed 12th with a daily best of 168-9 on her final throw after opening with a 49.88-meter mark, and foul on her second try. She missed advancing to the event final by just over 10 feet with the final prelim qualifier having a mark of 180-3.

Etter ended up her Duck career with All-America nods and eighth-place NCAA finishes as a freshman (2000) and junior (2002) and NCAA trips also in 2001 and 2003 as a sophomore and senior. She was a four-time top-four placer in the Pac-10 in the event, including a pair of third-place finishes, to go along with first place in the inaugural West Regional at Stanford four weeks ago.

She looks forward to one more season this fall for the Ducks as a goalkeeper for the soccer squad, while she also has one more indoor season of eligibility available after redshirting the 2003 indoor slate.
