Punxsy's Monoskey has thrown at a record-setting pace at PSU-Behrend

May 8, 2011

ERIE — When Punxsutawney native Katie Monoskey arrived at Penn State-Behrend three years ago, the Lions' track and field team didn't have a hammer thrower.

Head coach Greg Cooper, who recruited Monoskey, approached her to see if she would be interested in competing in the event.

Monoskey had experience in the three high school throwing events — discus, shot put and javelin — and wasn't against trying new things. She also wanted to focus on something more than the discus, which was her favorite event at the time.
