Lee ended her career with three Missouri All-Time Top Ten marks, and still holds the Missouri School Record in the hammer throw (63.77m / 209-2.5). Lee also competed post-collegiately, qualifying for the 2008 U.S. Olympic Trials in the shot put, the 2009 USATF Championships in the shot put and hammer, and the 2010 USATF Championships in the hammer.
