CHARLESTON – St. Elmo sophomore Molly Hill uncorked a strong throw at the state meet last Saturday to better her seed by four spots to place seventh in the discus.
Hill, who qualified for the meet but did not advance past the preliminaries last season as a freshman, came into the meet as the No. 11 seed, but threw a personal-best 116 feet, 2 inches.
In the preliminaries last Thursday, Hill threw a then-personal-best 113 feet, 6 inches to qualify for the finals as the No. 7 seed.
