BG’s Pleger No. 2 in nation
AKRON — Bowling Green State University’s Brooke Pleger broke her own school record in the hammer throw and climbed to No. 2 in the country in the event, throwing 219-feet-9 at the Northeast Ohio Invitational Friday, hosted by Akron.
Pleger set Bowling Green’s school record a week ago with a toss of 212-6 at the Raleigh Relays, the third-best throw in the country this year. She took it a step further Friday and surpassed UCLA’s Ida Storm, who had a throw of 217-1 earlier this year, for second in the nation. Only Arizona State’s Chelsea Cassulo has thrown further this year with a toss of 229-0.
The throw also met the USA Track and Field A Standard, meaning that Pleger has automatically qualified for the USA Track and Field Championships June 19-23 in Des Moines, Iowa.
