The Mustang senior launches the shot 40 feet
PORTLAND - Several local athletes earned top 10 placings at the BorderDuel Track Classic, held at Lewis and Clark College June 4.
Milwaukie senior Kaitlin Doyle did herself proud, placing fourth in the shot put (40-0-1/2) and seventh in the discus (114-3).
Her mark in the shot put was a lifetime best by over a foot and it broke a school record set by Schaelie Dobson (30-8) in 2001.
Doyle graduates from Milwaukie with two school records. She also holds the record in the discus (127-5), where she broke Milwaukie's oldest girls track and field record in the books (Cheryl Miller, 122-3-1/2, 1978) at this spring's Sandy Invitational.
