IOWA CITY, Iowa – Jamaican thrower Gleneve Grange was in top form at Saturday’s (21 Jan) Larry Wieczorek Invitational at the University of Iowa.
Grange and former St. Jago star Kellion Knibb produced a 1-2 shot put finish for Florida State University at the meet.
Grange, who made her FSU debut a week ago with the No. 5 mark in program history, was even better in the circle. Two of her five throws were even better, including a second attempt bomb of 16.11 meters (52-10.25), which vaulted her to No. 3 all-time among Seminoles and from No. 21 to No. 13 nationally.
Grange’s winning mark was a personal best.
Knibb, who surrendered the No. 3 spot to her fellow Jamaican, offered up a best of 15.02m (49-3.5) in her first competition since the discus at the Rio Olympic Games.
“Gleneve is such a great athlete,” FSU coach Bob Braman said in a release. “She’s not even a shot specialist and now she’s No. 3 all-time. Kellion was also very good, especially for a season-opener.”
