Double silver for Mallory

University of Alabama thrower Beth Mallory's freshman year continues to get better and better. She earned two silver medals at the Junior Pan-Am Championships.

The three-time Ohio state discus throw champion earned collegiate All-American honors as well as USA Track and Field All-American honors during her rookie campaign and earned a spot on the United State's Junior Pan American Game team held this week at the Barbados National Stadium in Waterford, St. Michael..

Earlier this week, at the Jr. Pan-Ams, Mallory has earned the silver medal in the discus with a toss of 50.91m/167-0. She finished just behind fellow American Amarachi Ukabam from Ohio State,

"I would have liked to do better, but you do what you do that day (to win). I am happy to be here and compete for Team USA," Mallory said.

Just two days after earning a silver medal in the discus, Alabama's Mallory also took silver in the hammer throw with a personal best of 189 feet and five inches at the Barbados National Stadium in Waterford, St. Michael.

"This was a great way to end my season. It was exciting to get a (personal record)," said Mallory.

Mallory is relatively new to the hammer, having started competing in the event after joining the Crimson Tide this past fall.

The United States dominated the medal standings with 48 overall. Team USA's women earned 25 medals with Mallory earning two of the team's nine silvers.
