Konigshofer earned bronze in her first all conference championship.

She threw a big personal record of 46.64 metres to finish third on the podium.

Konigshofer told The Laker News in an interview that proud is an understatement for getting bronze at her first AAC Conference championships.

“It was always my goal to be on the podium at this meet, but my goal becoming reality makes it so much more earned,” said Konigshofer.

“I couldn’t have done it without the support of my parents.”

The result sees Konigshofer, a Lockview High alum, improve to 31st best in the country (U.S.).
