Cherokee grad Jessica Woodard warms up for USATF Nationals with #18 shot put in the world in 2020!!!!!

Jessica Woodard warmed up for USATF Nationals later this month in Albuquerque by throwing 58-0 1/2 at the Red Raider Invitational at the Sports Performance Center in Lubbock, Texas.

That’s just eight inches off her lifetime indoor shot put PR.

Woodard, a Cherokee graduate and six-time All-America at Oklahoma now in her second year as a post-collegian, fouled on her first throw then hit 58-0 1/2 on her second. She also had a 57-2 in her series.

The 58-0 1/2 is No. 18 in the world so far this indoor season and No. 9 among U.S. women.

Woodard, who just turned 25 this week, has PRs of 58-8 3/4 indoors from a year ago today in Fayetteville, Ark., and 61-3 1/2 outdoors Eugene, Ore., in the spring of 2018. She ranks No. 24 in U.. history with that 61-3 1/2.

Woodard competes at USATF nationals at 7:30 p.m. Friday.
