Alaska’s Paige Blackburn continues to climb the Air Force Academy’s all-time list among the school’s greatest discus throwers.

The senior tossed a career-best 174 feet, 8 inches at the prestigious Mt. SAC Relays in Walnut, Calif., to finish seventh among collegiate throwers.

She improved her previous PR by more than five feet.

Blackburn, of Soldotna High fame, is now No. 2 on the Academy’s all-time list.
