Danie Plank of Gardner Edgerton High School recently participated in the National Scholastic Athletic Foundation’s third annual throwers challenge event in Chicago.
The event was put on by 2012 U.S. Olympic Coach and former international class javelin thrower Tom Pukskys. The event included the discus, javelin, shot put and hammer- throwing competition.
The goal was to provide a positive atmosphere for throwers and an opportunity to compete against elites.
Plank recently won her fourth straight state javelin title. She is only the second female in the state of Kansas to win four state titles in the event.
