BARCELONA, Spain -- Iowa State freshman Christina Hillman (Dover, Del.) produced a solid series of throws to qualify for Tuesday's final of the women's shot put at the World Junior Championships (U-20) Although all three throws would have been good enough to reach the final, Hillman said she was nervous and not lining up correctly in the first two rounds. Her adjustments worked in round three when she produced a toss of 16.11/52-10¼ to automatically qualify for the final with the third-best mark of the morning.

"I knew that that my last throw was good and now I'm ready for (tonight's finals)," said Hillman. "I'm excited about it and really want to PR and be on that award stand, that's my goal."

Torie Owers (Athens, Ga.) also qualified for the final with a toss of 14.82/48-7½. Germany's Shanice Craft had the top qualifier of 16.41/53-10¼.
