West Fargo’s Thurn takes second at Hershey Finals
July 10 was an exciting day for Maren Michelle Thurn.
Thurn made the journey to Hershey, Pa., on Aug. 2, and on her third attempt chucked the softball 133 feet, 4 inches, a personal record and enough for a second-place finish.
Kayla Johnson won the event with a throw of 145 feet.
Since the first competition this year, Thurn’s distances have gotten better.
At regionals held at Fargo South in May, Thurn’s farthest throw was 124 feet, 4 inches, and at state in West Fargo, she finished with a toss of 126 feet, ¾ inches.
