Adam Schnaible, Minnesota
JR, Burnsville, Minn./Burnsville
Schnaible picked up two NCAA qualifying standards at the SnowShoe Open over the weekend. The junior finished first in the weight throw with a personal-best, automatic qualifying mark of 69' 8 ¼". His toss shattered his own school record by over two feet and broke the six-year-old facilities mark of 69'4". Schnaible went on to finish second in the shot put, meeting a provisional standard and recording another personal best with a 59' 9 ½" distance. This his second indoor accolade of his career.
