Gillis ranks No. 7 all time in Saddleback history in the hammer throw after a toss of 51.59 meters at the Southern California Championships. She will continue her athletic career at the University of Wyoming, located in Laramie, Wyoming. The Cowboys compete in the Mountain West Conference and finished fifth at the MWC Finals in May.
