Arrhenius posted the fourth-longest discus throw in the nation, according to TrackShark .com, on Saturday at the Arizona State Invitational. Arrhenius, from Orem, finished second among collegiate throwers at the event with a toss of 196 feet, 5 inches, a regional qualifying mark. His toss was more than 12 feet farther than his previous personal-best mark, and it positions him as the top discus thrower in the MWC so far this season.
