Women’s Field Athlete of the Week

Patterson kicked off her senior outdoor track and field season with a new meet record in the javelin toss, hitting a distance of 191-08 (58.41m.) at the Arizona State Invitational this past weekend. Her first-place mark shattered the regional qualifying standard by nearly 15 meters and was only an inch shy of her U.S. Olympic Trials record which she set last summer.
