ALSO, I am going to Nationals too. I'm throwing in 2 events: discus and hammer, both Emerging Elite. Lauren Swanson is also going to throw in Championship hammer! I don't really find it fair that the boys get to have an article and Lauren and I are not included.

Hey Summer, this info was sent along as a reader contribution. I'd be happy to write something about you and Lauren. Send me an email at mark.schieldrop@patch.com.
