Natya Glasco is finishing high school on a high note.
The Roslyn High School senior will graduate Friday, just two weeks after taking first place in the state for the shot put. She competed for her school at the state public high school outdoor track and field championships that were held June 7 and 8.
Her throw of 43 feet and 4.75 inches was three inches farther than the second place contender.
Glasco broke the high school’s shot put record in the fall when she reached 40 feet and 1 inch. The previous school record, which had remained for 30 years, was set by Vera Trenchfield, one of Glasco’s coaches.
In the spring season, Glasco consistently broke her record from the fall.
She also competes in discus and the hammer throw.
At a September Board of Education meeting in which Glasco was recognized for her athletic achievement, Trenchfield said she is hard-working and dedicated to the sport.
Glasco will attend Rider University in the fall where she has committed to play on the Division I track and field team.
