It's only March and Shelbi Vaughan is already PR'ing in the discus.
The senior from Legacy (Mansfield, Texas) threw 176-9 on March 24 to re-establish her US#1 ranking in the discus. The Texas A&M recruit finished 2011 at No. 1 with 176-5 on July 10.
Vaughan is ranked No. 18 all-time and could make big gains this spring. She is entered at the Texas Relays this weekend.
(A belated congrats are in order to Ashley Weber of Buena (Sierra Vista, Ariz.), who broke the Arizona state record in the hammer with her toss of 169-11 on March 17).
