GULF SHORES, Ala. – Dakota State (S.D.) kicked off the first day of the NAIA Outdoor Track & Field National Championships at Mickey Miller Blackwell Stadium Thursday morning.  Kylie Martin competed in the women's hammer throw along with 29 other throwers in the event at the national meet.

Martin threw a distance of 47.01 meters on her first throw, while recording a measurement of 46 meters on her second throw attempts for the Trojans.  She tossed her best throw on the third attempt, throwing a measurement of 48.52 meters (156 feet, .75 inches) to finish fourth in the first flight.

Martin did not advance to the final round and placed 20th overall for Dakota State.  Her best-mark is the national-best measurement, while she posted a measurement of 47.11 meters (154 feet, 7 inches) in last year's national meet.

The 2017 NAIA Outdoor Track & Field National Championships officially conclude Martin's impressive four-year track career at DSU.  She holds the top three best throws in the hammer throw in the Trojan Women's Outdoor Track & Field school record book.  Martin owns the school record of 160 feet, 8 inches where she set at the Sioux City Relays last April.  She recorded the second best hammer throw in school history with a measurement of 155 feet, 1 inch in 2016 and third-best in 2015 with a distance of 147 feet, 6 inches.

Martin is also third in the women's outdoor school record book in shot put, posting a measurement of 41 feet, 3.25 inches.  She holds the DSU Women's Indoor Track & Field School record book for the best shot put throw with a measurement of 41 feet, .25 inches this past winter.
