The Best of the Best: Missouri's Nationally Ranked Athletes

Makayla Kelby (Lee's Summit West)

US #2 Discus: 168-6

US #13 Shot Put: 47-0

I wrote about what she did at Arcadia last weekend in Discus earlier this week, and last night she was able to throw a PR in Shot with a 47-0! That throw is the 13th farthest in the United States currently, and that will make her the only Missourian ranked in the top 25 National in multiple Events. Her State Record Discus throw of 168-6 is the currently the second farthest throw in the country, and it seems she just keeps getting better. I'm excited to see how the rest of her season goes!
