UNI freshman Paige Knodle took home a third place finish in the heptathlon at the U.S. Track and Field Junior Championships.

Knodle moved up 2 spots on the final day after finishing day one in 5th place.  She tallied 5,230 points in the event after a personal best 18' 3.25" effort in the long jump.  Her performances in the javelin and 800 meters were both the second best of her career.
