Wisconsin senior Kelsey Card threw 202 feet, 4 inches to finish third in the hammer throw on Friday, becoming the first collegian in history to surpass 2oo feet in both the discus and hammer and top 60 feet in the shot put.

On Saturday, Card broke her own Big Ten meet record in the shot put with a toss of 59-9 1/2 to claim her sixth conference title.

Card continued her winning ways on Sunday, claiming the Big Ten Conference crown in the discus with a league-record throw of 204-2.

The throw makes Card the No. 10 performer in NCAA history in the discus, a week after she entered the all-time top 10 in the shot put.

Card scored 26 of UW’s 55.5 points on the weekend, as the Badgers finished in eighth in the team standings.  Michigan and Minnesota shared the team title with 106 points.

The Badgers will find out how many athletes they qualify for the 2016 NCAA West Preliminary Round later this week.
