New California State Shot Put record for Elena Bruckner, Valley Christian SJ

Valley Christian SJ senior Elena Bruckner tossed her 5th attempt to 54'7" at WCAL championship meet at St. Francis, Mt. View HS this past Friday. Her 6th throw as you can see by the result above also surpassed the previous CA record. The previous record holder was Anna Jelmini Shafter-Central Section with a best of 54'4.75" set in 2009. Bruckner's mark is also US #4 all-time trailing only Raven Saunders 56'8.25", Michelle Carter 54'10.75" and Maggie Ewen 54'8.25". For those of you keeping score, Bruckner is also US #4 in Discus with her 186'10".

And not one local news media outlet picked it up. Can you imagine the press that the best football/basketball player ever in CA history would get almost weekly. And this not even in the scorebox. Maybe a national record can make the back page?

They marked Athiya Iese's best throw wrong.

Way to go Elena!

Someone commented that the mark would have to be certified before it became an official record. Can a field person enlighten us distance people about the certification process?

There is a record certification form that must be signed by the meet official, athlete, head coach and school principal that will then be sent in to the State Office for verification.
