Heal Throws at Nationals
LA CROSSE, WI – It was the final day of the NCAA Division III Track and Field National Championship Meet on Saturday, which meant Lynchburg College thrower Leah Heal took to the runway.
Taking place in the cold conditions of Wisconsin, Heal competed in the first flight of the javelin preliminaries. She came up short of making the finals, with her longest toss being her final one. In the wind, Heal hurled the jav 114'1" in her final attempt as a Lynchburg Hornet.
With her attempt at the finals stymied, it concludes the track and field season for Lynchburg College.
