Student-athlete sets new marks in the shot put and weight throw at weekend invitational
Rashida Harris shattered two Cuyahoga Community College (Tri-C®) indoor track and field records while competing Saturday at the Jim Wuske Invitational.
Harris topped her own school records in the shot put and weight throw while winning both events at the invitational, held at the Peterson Field House on the University of Mount Union campus in Alliance.
She unleashed a heave of 49 feet, 8.75 inches in the shot put to set the College record for the third time in a month.
Harris extended her school mark in the weight throw with a toss of 55 feet, 11.25 inches.
The sophomore from Euclid will compete in both field events at the 2017 NJCAA Indoor Track & Field Championships. Last year, she earned All-American honors in the shot put after placing fifth at the national meet.
Harris is working toward an Associate of Science degree at Tri-C with a focus in physical therapy.
