Jessica Woodard won her third Big 12 Conference shot put title Sunday, with a season-best 59-3 1/2, the No. 3 throw in the country this spring.
Woodard won the outdoor title last year and the indoor title this year. Her throw Sunday at Baylor’s Clyde Hart Stadium was less than a foot off her PR of 60-2 3/4, set at last year’s Big 12 meet.
Woodard trails only Arizona State’s Maggie Ewen [63-10 1/4] and Stanford’s Lena Giger [59-4 1/4] on the NCAA Division 1 list. Her mark is No. 23 on the 2018 world women’s list USA and No. 7 among U.S. women.
On Saturday, Woodard placed third in the discus with a throw of 184-7, also the second-best of her brilliant career at Oklahoma. Her PR is a 190-9 from a meet in Austin back in March and is No. 7 in NCAA Division 1 this year. She’s No. 37 internationally and the No. 10 American women.
Woodard’s best throw in both events this weekend came on her third throw of the competition.
The only other U.S. collegian ranked in the top 10 in both the shot and discus is Ewen [63-10 1/4, 201-0], the double national leader.
