“I am excited to see what I can do next season,” she said.

Last year, Amelia posted bests of 96-1.25 in the discus and 32-3 in the shot put. She hopes to post some even better performances this coming spring.

The Panthers' junior placed third in the shot put in the Mississippi Valley Conference Meet and sixth in the discus.

Amelia has played basketball, but right now she is focusing on Scholar Bowl and also her academics. But when we reach February 2024, she will be focused on the development of her skills in the shot put and discus both indoors and outdoors.

Again congrats to Amelia Strebel on her Sparklight Female Athlete of the Month honor.
