Senior Spotlight: Lena Giger

Hailing from the small town of Highland, Illinois, fifth-year senior Lena Giger recently concluded her collegiate career with a runner-up finish in the shot put at the indoor NCAA Track and Field Championships. Her throw of 58 feet, 8 and 1/2 inches earned her the indoor school record in shot put, moving her ahead of Jillian Camarena, a two-time Olympian and current school record holder in the outdoor equivalent.
