Both Abby and Molly Hill of St. Elmo High School were eliminated from the state meet during the preliminaries of the discus throw.


Molly, who was one of just two freshman in discus, had a throw of 97 feet, 4 inches.

Abby, a senior, threw 88 feet, 11 inches.

The shortest distance that qualified for the finals was 116 feet, 1 inch, which is better than both Hills' personal-best.
