Card breaks own record in shot put at Wisconsin Twilight

Posted: Updated:

MADISON, Wis. (WKOW) -- Kelsey Card is throwing her way into the history books.

Two weeks ago, Card broke her own Big Ten and school record in the shot put at the Triton Invitational in San Diego. Then at Friday's Wisconsin Twilight, the senior did it again on her final throw, recording an incredible mark of 60 feet, 10 3/4 inches to win the event. 

“Last time throwing here in a Badger uniform, I wanted to try to go out on a high note,” Card said. “Going over, (60 feet) it was huge.”

The mark inches her closer to taking over Mississippi’s Raven Saunders (61-6 ¼) as the nation’s leader in the event.

The Plainview, Illinois, native also won the discus event, with a throw of 202-5.
