Spartans News · Jessica Beckman Breaks 32 year old School Discus Record

Last night, CHS Track standout Jessica Beckman not only won the sectional title in the Shot Put and Discus but she took down a school record that has stood for the last 32 years. The CHS record in the event was set in 1986 by Tracie Harry with a distance of 121-6. Prior to the meet, Beckman’s best throw had been only 2 inches off the record, a personal best set earlier this season at the Midwest Prep Invitational. With a throw of 125-6, Beckman shattered the record and beat the runner up by over 13 feet. Looking forward to the regional, Beckman will try to place in the top 3 to advance to the state meet in the event. The regional will take place next Tuesday at Shelbyville High School at 6pm.
