The Hammer Thrower

Agné Lukoseviciute ’21 beat her own school record for the hammer throw multiple times during the outdoor track season. With a throw of 181 feet 1 inch at the Midwest Conference Outdoor Championships May 10, 2019, Lukoseviciute threw the second-best in the country in Division III competition. 

“A big part is the technique,” she says. “I obsess over the technique.” 

During the season Lukoseviciute also broke the Lithuanian national record of 177 feet 7 inches, held since 2007 by Vaida Keleciute. Lukoseviciute was born in Lithuania and moved to the United States with her mom and brother when she was 12. She started throwing the hammer in April 2018, during her first outdoor track season for Grinnell.
