Valley City State sophomore Jessica Meland, of Harvey, N.D., competed in her first National Association of Intercollegiate Athletics Womenâs Hammer Throw Championships in Gulf Shores, Ala., on May 15, where she fouled on her first and third attempts but landed 24th place on her second throw, which sailed 45.33 meters (148 feet, 9 inches).
Melandâs 45.33 meters was shy of her personal-best 50.29 meters (165 feet) set at the Northern State Open on April 18.
A pair of untimely hits derailed No. 2 Valley Cityâs plans for a second straight State appearance.
