If you didn’t make our list, it doesn’t mean you were forgotten. Your hard work and dedication certainly made it another memorable season as a whole for us here at BSR.
Memorable Moments, 2023: Sargent Takes New England Shot Title
After throwing in the mid-30 foot range for the shot in 2022, Catherine Sargent had a breakthrough year inside the circle during her senior campaign. The Dedham standout tossed the metal ball further than 40 feet multiple times during the indoor season and captured the Division 5 crown with a best of 41 feet, 5.5 inches. Sargent continued her consistency this past spring, matching her third-place finish from the winter at the Meet of Champions and then unleashing the best throw of her career at the New England Championships on June 10 where she had a winning effort at 44-3, a PR by nearly two feet!
