LOUISVILLE — B.J. Hogue accomplished her final goal on Thursday.
The Casey County junior had already won a regional championship and thrown 100 feet in the discus.
But she threw her best Thursday, finishing third with a throw of 104 feet, 1 inch at the Class AA State Track and Field Championships at the University of Louisville.
“It was crazy, I didn’t really think about it much,” said Hogue, who also competed in the shot put. “I just told myself I was going to get up there and do what I knew I could. This was the first year I have been to state in throws. I’ve always been running.”
Her teammate, junior Nicole Coffman ran one of her best times in the 400-meter dash, finishing in 1 minute, .06 seconds and placing fourth. And even after placing third last year, Coffman was not complaining.
