Pocatello, Idaho—Laurel Kun, a senior from Oregon City, Oregon, placed first in the girls’ shot put at the 2019 Simplot Games with a distance of 40’2”.
Before her final throw, Kun had to overcome some mental hurdles, but she pulled through.
“I was relieved to get a good mark and to see the technique finally come together,” Kun said.
Kun will be throwing for the University of Pittsburg next year.
