*EMPORIA STATE SPRING INVITE RECAP
Around 20 Shockers (mostly throwers) officially opened the outdoor season at Emporia State Friday. Early season meets always have to deal with unpredictable weather and rusty athletes but all-in-all it was a successful opener for many Shockers. Aaron True looked in mid-season form with a near PR to win the Javelin while Tyra Bickham competed hard, winning the Discus by 4 centimeters on her final throw! Eight Shockers improved their personal bests while many young athletes got their feet wet competing for the first time outdoors.
