Heather Steacy becomes the first CIS woman to throw over 20 metres in the weight throw.
It's a monumental mark for a University of Lethbridge track and field star. Two weeks after setting a new personal best of 19.24 metres, Heather Steacy has become the first CIS woman to throw over 20 metres in the weight throw. She hit the 20.28 metre mark at the Bison Classic in Winnipeg this past weekend. In her first three seasons of eligibility, Steacy has medaled in all three Canada West and CIS Championships meets, winning three conference titles and two CIS gold medals and a bronze in the 2009 CIS Championships. She took last season off of indoor competition to focus on the hammer throw. The Pronghorns track team heads back to Winnipeg for the Canada West Championships February 25th and 26th. The CIS Championships are March 10-12 in Sherbrooke, Quebec.
