Mount Pleasant — It was yet another record setting performance for Mount Pleasant junior Jadan Brumbaugh, who broke her own school record yet again throwing a monstrous 44 feet, 10 1/2 inches.

Brumbaugh, the Drake Relays champion, has her sights set on on a state championship now.

Mount Pleasant also saw Cristina Carthey, Karsyn Lamm, Grace Kelley and Abby Blint qualify.

Carthey ran 5:24.11 for second place in the 1,500m.

Lamm, who was the third-seed, came from behind with a late surge to nip top-seeded Kelsey Pacha of Fairfield. Lamm ran 15.80.

Blint was another runner up for the Panthers, this time in the 3,000m run. Blint ran 11:43.06 to earn an automatic qualification into the dance.

Meanwhile Grace Kelley, the Panther discus ace, threw 124 feet, five inches. That was good enough for a runner up finish behind Davenport Assumption’s Anna Wohlers.
