Otterdahl won the Graduate Classic men’s weight throw last Friday with a throw of 73-2 1/2 (22.31m). It was a personal best that moved him up to No. 1 in the Big Ten and No. 2 in the NCAA this season.
Otterdahl’s mark was just one inch shy of Alex Talley’s school record set last year. The Rosemount, Minn., native was the Big Ten Men’s Field Athlete of the Outdoor Championships last year after sweeping the shot put and discus titles.
