Assmus posted two-second place finishes (shot put and weight throw) and Olson placed second in the high jump. Assmus recorded distances of 44 feet and 0 inches (shot put) and 54-3 ¼ (weight throw) on the afternoon. Olson jumped a height of 5-3 in the high jump event.
On the men’s side, the Jackrabbits had two throwers place in the top-five in the shot put. Austin Benson placed fourth overall (46-11 ½) in his Jackrabbit debut and Kyle Anderson took fifth in the event with his mark of 46-11.
Looking Ahead: The Jackrabbits are scheduled to attend the Iowa State Bill Bergan Invite and the Minnesota State Open next weekend. The Iowa State Bill Bergan Invite takes place in Ames, Iowa and the Minnesota State Open is in Mankato, Minn.
