Kristen Batts made the most of her final throw of the women’s discus competition Thursday, capturing the individual championship to become the first winner of the Atlantic Coast Conference Outdoor Track and Field Championships being hosted by Duke University. Batts, a Terrapin senior, had a mark of 160 feet, 11 inches to win the competition. It was Maryland’s first individual win on the women’s side since 2007 when Toni Aluko won the high jump during the last time the Terps’ hosted the league championships. It was Maryland’s first win in the women’s discus since Marita Walton won the event in 1983.
