Lancer Shot-Put Star Sets Record, Wins Award

A Windsor Lancer has received a top award from U-Sports at their annual award banquet.

Lancer shot-putter Sarah Mitton has been named the U SPORTS Outstanding Female Field Performer at the league awards brunch today.

Entering the OUA Championships as the defending champ and No. 1 nationally ranked thrower in the shot-put event, Mitton beat out the competition on Day 1 by almost three meters, throwing an impressive 16.82m for her efforts, to not only set a new personal best but also set a new Lancer record.

This was the second time the Brooklyn, Nova Scotia native broke the Lancer record in the event this year, after setting a new marker in her first meet of the year at Windsor's Blue & Gold meet.

She followed that up with a throw of 16.47m in the weight throw competition the very next morning, which was also helped her capture gold in that event and ranked her No. 2 in the national rankings.
