Jonathan Schwab

Friday, March 8 – Rockbridge County High School senior female thrower Danielle Crawford placed 14th of 44 individuals in the shot put at the New Balance Nationals Indoor track and field meet on Friday at the Amory Track and Field Facility in New York City.

Crawford’s throw of 38 feet, 10.5 inches broke her own school record, which she’d set in early December, by half an inch. Crawford won the indoor state shot put championship on Feb. 23, becoming RC’s first athlete to win a state throwing title. Her mark at the Class 3 state meet was 38-7. For the spring, Crawford will throw shot put and discus for her final high school outdoor track and field season.
