York Institute Sophomore Gabby Beaty became a State Champion for Shot Put last Tuesday when she had a school-record 37-06 throw.

Beaty was also on the podium a little later in the day when she finished second overall in the Discus Throw.

She also led the final First Bank First Team for the 2020-21 school year.
