DES MOINES - Northeast Hamilton senior Jennifer Jeffers ended her prep track career exactly where she wanted: On the blue oval.

Jeffers, the school's lone Class 1A state qualifier, competed in the girls' 800-meter run Saturday morning at Drake Stadium during the final day of the Iowa Co-Ed State Track and Field Championships.

Running in the first of two sections, Jeffers circled the track twice in 2:36.89 to finish 11th in her heat and 23rd overall.
