McKnight finishes sixth at NCAA Championships


MANKATO, Minn. – Northwest Missouri State junior Lekiesha McKnight earned a sixth place finish in the shot put at the 2012 NCAA Indoor National Championships over the weekend.

McKnight was the lone Bearcat competing at the national championships, as she narrowly missed a personal record with a distance of 46-11.00. The mark put her in sixth place as Grand Valley State’s Lauren Buresh walked away with the individual national championship.

Grand Valley State took home the team championship as Adams State was runner-up. MIAA opponents Lincoln and Central Missouri were not only the top two conference finishers, but top teams from the region coming in third and fourth respectively.
