CEDAR CITY, Utah
-- For the last three weeks, UVU's Maryn Pincock
had been setting personal bests and school records in the discuss and shot put, and Saturday at the SUU-UVU dual she continues to excel.
Pincock shattered her school record in the discus that she set last week by nearly seven feet with a toss of 164 feet, 1 inch in finishing second, and then she set a new personal record in the shot put with a throw of 44-3.25.
UVU track and field coach Scott Houle said the meet, which lasted just two hours, wasn't scored. It was more for some athletes to get better marks and times to position themselves for possible bids for the regional meet.
Houle said Pincock moved into the top 48 in performances across the nation this year in the discus, and if the regional meet were tomorrow she would be in. But she'll have to wait for a couple more weeks to see if it holds or if she can better marks to move up in the rankings.
In all, the Wolverines posted 17 individual first-place finishes at the SUU Dual.
