Megan Porta accomplished something that no other Pine River-Backus athlete has done for quite some time when the sophomore reached the podium after finishing fifth in the discus competition at the Class A state track and field meet on Friday, June 7, at Hamline University in St. Paul.
“I’m not sure when the last time it happened,” PR-B head coach Tom Demars said of Porta’s medal performance, “but Megan is pretty happy. She has only competed in discus for a year and a half, so she’s come a long way. She improved her throws by 15 feet from last year.”
