OMAHA, Neb. (KSNB) - Gothenburg’s Madison Smith is no stranger to Burke Stadium.

In 2022, Smith took home the Class B Girls Discus crown, and she entered Wednesday looking to do it for the second-straight year. She accomplished just that with a throw of 145′2″, and she said she couldn’t be more thrilled after the winning throw.

“It feels amazing to come back and do it again,” Smith said. “I’ve worked hard all year. I had a lot of pressure on myself, not necessarily from anybody else, but I felt like I needed to come and do it again, especially with how I’ve been throwing this year. Being able to come and support our town and just represent our community of amazing people is such a good experience, such a great opportunity that I get.”
