Dolphins dominate the discus in the first outdoor meet of the year
JACKSONVILLE, Fla. – The JU track & field team kicked off its outdoor season Friday at the UNF Spring Break Open.
Although the Dolphins only had a few competitors in action Friday, they dominated the events that they participated in.
JU’s Kree Clark and Akeela Bravo finished first and second in the discus with throws of 149-08 and 144-09. Fellow throwers Sally-Marie Futch and Sara Schunter finished fifth and sixth in the event with throws of 125-01 and 121-11.
“The throws group had a nice day in less than ideal conditions,” said Dolphin head coach Ron Grigg. “Kree and Akeela gave us a glimpse of exciting things to come. Those distances in those cold, dark, and windy conditions were a great way to kick off our outdoor campaign.”
The Dolphins return to action tomorrow to complete the remainder of the meet.
