Grand Forks Red River’s Shelby Frank won the discus championship Saturday at the New Balance Outdoor Championships at Aggie Stradium in Greensboro, N.C.

Frank won the event with a throw of 155 feet.

Frank edged runner-up Gretchen Hoekstre of Oregon, who threw 154 feet, 10 inches.

It’s the third-straight season Frank has won a national title in the discus.

At the 2019 North Dakota Class A state meet in late May, Frank became a six-time state champion winning back-to-back state titles in the shot put and her fourth-consecutive championship in the discus.
