Pleger shatters school record
Bowling Green State University's Brooke Pleger posted a record mark in the hammer throw as the Falcon track and field team competed at two separate events Saturday. The split squads competed at the Raleigh Relays, hosted by North Carolina State, and the Toledo Collegiate Challenge, hosted by the University of Toledo.
Pleger threw the hammer 212-feet-6 to break the meet and facility record in North Carolina. Her distance ranks third in the country currently and has only been bettered in the MAC outdoor track and field championship one time in history. The previous school record of 191-7 was set by Whitney Hartman, from Eastwood High School, in 2008 and the Raleigh Relays meet record had stood since 1999.
In addition, the 800-meter relay team of Jeanette Pettigrew, Taylor Rambo, Brittany Sinclair and Allison Weimer set a school record with a time of 1:37.80 in North Carolina. The old record of 1:38.95 was set in 1995.
