On Jan. 10, the first day of the UAB Invitational in Birmingham, Alabama, sophomore weight thrower Tracy Dorcemont set a Georgia State record when she heaved for 18.19 meters. The throw was good enough for her to finish fourth in the event for that day.
Dorcemont was born in 1995 in Miami and is currently majoring in pre-medical studies at Georgia State. While in high school at Roswell High, she was part of their track and field team. In 2013, she won a regional meet at the Class 6-A level with a throw of 41.4 meters.
As a freshman, she posted a shot put of 13.01 meters at the Samford Invitational in Birmingham. That same year on the outdoor track and field circuit, she had a season-best shot put of 13.03 meters at the Troy Invitational in Alabama.
