Excelsior High's standout athlete, Shanice Love created a major upset at the Frankfield Stadium, when she produced another massive throw of 54.72m to cop the High School Girls Discus Title in a new Penn Relays Record. Her mark surpassed Gleneve Grange’s (formerly of Holmwood Tech) 2013 mark of 54.29m.

As I sat inside the National Stadium, watching as jubilant supporters streamed into the facility on Saturday afternoon, something said to me, it was definitely looking to be a day we will always remember. Drenched in sunshine, there was the mire of supporting colours, noise and excitement. A mega race to the line for Champs 2016 was waiting to unfold— it just didn't get any better. Truly it didn't.

Former Holmwood Technical stand out Gleneve Grange's National Junior Discus record of 54.29m and former Edwin Allen athlete Tara Sue Barnett's record for Class One Girls, 51.15m, are in jeopardy. The Excelsior talent, Shanice Love, is looking to take down both marks and etch her name in the record books.

Since 2012 the record has switched hands, moving from St Jago Alumni Kellion Knibb (2012) to Bennett (2013) and then Grange (2014).
