UNIVERSITY CENTER, Mich. — Two trips to Saginaw Valley State University (SVSU), two successful outings for sophomore shot put specialist Kassadie Dewdney-Sims and first-year head coach Cary Ossiff.

Dewdney-Sims, alongside sisters Amber Staudt (Novi, Mich./Schoolcraft College) and Rachel Staudt, put together another well-rounded outing as Ossiff looks to continue building the foundation for Marygrove women’s track & field around the throws events. All three competed in the shot put for Ossiff as the trio gears up for an outdoor campaign where they intend on entering multiple throws events.

On Saturday (Jan. 31), Dewdney-Sims posted an impressive finals throw of 10.54m. The throw north of 10 meters marked a season-best for Dewdney-Sims and elevated the sophomore into ninth place overall in a loaded field mainly comprised of NCAA Division II participants. Dewdney-Sims placed fifth with a throw of 10.27m in her last time out at SVSU.

Rachel Staudt (Novi, Mich./LawrenceTechnological University) nearly matched her output from the season-opening meet at SVSU on Jan. 16, posting a throw of 9.17m Saturday afternoon. The elder Staudt sister posted a season-best 9.41m throw at the season-opening SVSU meet.

Younger sister Amber Staudt checked in with a throw of 8.17m as the Mustangs third and final participant in Saturday’s shot put event.

The Mustangs return to action in two weeks (Feb. 13) at the Defiance (Ohio) Open.
