She bumped her mark up to 98-07 on the first throw of the finals, but couldn't surpass it on her final two throws. Though her throw was one her best of the season, it was shy of the personal-record mark of 105-06 she threw to win the Tri-River Conference championship the week before.

The competition was won with a throw of 128-11 by Grant Union sophomore Kaylee Wright, who earned her second consecutive 2A state title in the event after setting the 2A state meet record of 131-03 last year.
