Track and Field Top 50: Discus Todd Grasley Jan 21, 2014

We conclude our Track & Field Top 50 with our discus throwers. Much like the shot put, Miami Northwestern senior Lloydricia Cameron dominated the discus in 2013. Cameron won the 3A state championship, Golden South Classic, USATF World Youth Trials, and AAU Junior Olympics just to name a few. Her personal best of 159-50 is over 17 feet better than anyone in the state and is the third best returning time in the country for 2014.
