    I believe that was about a 6' improvement over her previous best, before this meet. More than 12% improvement.
    If this is correct, that is a crazy breakout performance. Many would be happy with a few inches here, few inches there improvement. A foot or two, really happy. Six feet, hard to describe. A 12% improvement improvement in the 400m would be like going from a personal best of 50 seconds to 44 seconds, or from a 1500m in 4:00 to a 3:31, a personal best long jump from 24 ft to 26 ft 1.5 inches.

    She threw 52' 10 1/4" at the Baldy Castillo Meet in Tempe last month. So, nearly 4 feet further this past Saturday.

    At the Summit League Indoor Championships, she went 55' 2 1/4".

    Her first collegiate meet (Thundering Herd Classic) just three months ago, she registered a mark of only 47' 10 1/2".

    Another success story in the making for the Bison throwing program and Coach St. Clair.

    Amanda Levin definitely deserves a shout out for her performance this weekend in the heptathlon. She breaks the school record held by Whitney Carlson who was an All American in the event. Amanda is highly likely to make the NCAA championship with her score. Great to see a local West Fargo athlete with the success!

    Absolutely!

    5th best score in the NCAAs this spring and #3 in the West Qualifying List (5,695).

    Incredibly, 30 of the top 100 heptathlon scores in the entire country this spring were posted at this same meet (The Bryon Clay Invitational).
