In the shot put, it was Cheyenne Spliethof getting the win with a 33-1.25 effort.

It was a new personal record by almost four feet for the junior. Her previous best was 29 feet, 5.25 inches.

The throw put her 10th in the 2A among shotputters, and only a few inches shy of
being as high as fifth.

Max Halverson cleared 5 feet, six inches, but so did two Vernonia high jumpers. Halverson
took second on misses.
