Richards on Monday broke her own school record in discus with a throw of 154 feet, 10 inches at the Girls Throwdown in Madison.

It beat her record by nearly eight feet, coach Andrew Pfeuffer said.

Caryn Hamm had a personal record with a throw of 112-4.

Coach Eric Teunissen said that record could fall again before the end of the season.

“Anything is possible. Now we change focus to winning events at conference and trying to advance to state,” he said.

At last Friday’s Hilbert Invite, Ozaukee’s girls won five events in taking third place with 105 points. Hilbert won with 144 and Sheboygan North scored 134.

“The 10-team invite produced quality competition against some conference, division, and even Division 1 opponents,”  Pfeuffer said.

“Our girls worked really hard and are starting to see their times go down and our distances increase in the field.”

Elise Large won the 1,600 in 5:25.18 and the 3,200 in 11:57.92.

Richards won shot put with a throw of 44.85.

Gavin Dorrler won the 200 in a personal-record 23.48, the high jump by clearing 6-2 and the long jump with a 20-11.

“With our small roster, our boys performed well, continued to improve their marks, and set many season best/personal records along the way,” Pfeuffer said.

Logan Ketterhagen was eighth in the 1,600 in 4:57.86.
