FAYETTEVILLE, Ark. – Senior Jackrabbit thrower Shelby Assmus placed 47th overall in the shot put competition Thursday at the NCAA West Preliminary Round.

Assmus tallied a mark of 43 feet, 11 1/4 inches on her final throw of the day. She fouled her first attempt and posted a distance of 42-5 1/2 on her second throw.

During her time as a Jackrabbit, she was named All-Summit League at four conference meets and this year she finished in the top-five in all five conference events competed in, including three runner-up finishes.

Assmus ends her career with her name etched into the Jackrabbit record book. In the indoor record book, Assmus ranks sixth in the shot put (47-11 1/4) and fourth in the weight throw (57-1). In the outdoor record book, she ranks third in the shot put (48-4), sixth in the discus throw (156-11) and third in the hammer throw (181-0). All her final marks were set during her senior year.

High jumpers Kali Olson and Mary Wirth are set to compete Saturday night at 6 p.m.
