Women's Hammer Throw, University/College
Britney Henry, Unattached
On the victory: It feels great, I've been away for a couple years since I've been out of college. I love this meet, especially the atmosphere and Austin, Texas is my favorite city. So, it's good to come back especially having a win. I just wanted to come out here and capitalize on what I did last week at a meet up in Oregon. So coming out throwing 67 and consistently building up and getting my marks higher makes me really excited about what's to come this season.

On competing at the Texas Relays: It is truly awesome. I grew up a UT fan, though I'm obviously a Tiger at heart now, I love Austin, and I love the fact that I was able to come here to get the win and P.R.
