Lara Saye Throws Lifetime-Best in Discus at CSUN Invite

March 19, 2005

Seniors Lara Saye and Jessica Cosby posted individual wins on Saturday at the Cal State Northridge Invitational, as Saye won the discus and Cosby won the shot put.

Saye, who has thrown 185-0 already this season, improved on last year's lifetime-best (184-9) by nearly a foot on Saturday, throwing 185-7 in the discus. The mark will likely place her in the top-10 in the country in her event. Cosby won the shot put with a season-best 53-9.25, as both ladies threw regional qualifiers in their events. Saye also placed third in the shot put with a throw of 47-2.25, but has already thrown 50+ this season.

On the track, three Bruins were in action as Renee Williams (12.54) and Shannon Lewis (13.08) ran in the 100m race, and Jacquelyn Mandy ran the 400m (59.94).

In other field events, Kathleen Mahony jumped 5-0.25 in the high jump and Leslie Rychel jumped 17-8.25 in the long jump.
