DES MOINES — The Webster City track and field teams ended their season at the state meet inside Drake Stadium.

Jaxon Cherry concluded his incredible prep career with a 10th place finish in the Class 3A shot put.

After finishing sixth in the discus, Cherry had a throw of 52-2 to set a new personal record and end his career strong.

The Lynx also ran in the boys distance medley, as Jayden Weinzetl, Keegan Hisler, Luke Estlund and Justin Callahan went 3:44.78 to place 21st overall.

“Jaxon Cherry had another great day with his two best throws of the year,” WCHS head coach Chad Hisler said. “The distance medley did not have their best time, but still had a great season.”

Earlier in the meet, Hisler was 15th in the high jump with a new PR of 6-1. Weinzetl set a new PR in the 200 at 22.78 to place 18th.

For the Webster City girls, Adysen Poppen had a throw of 34-10.5 to finish 19th in the shot put and the 4×400 relay of Cloe Savitski, Adeline Tesdahl, Rosemary Chamness and Isabel Grossoehme was 24th in the prelims with a time of 4:19.78.

Grossoehme also placed 14th in the 400 with a new PR of 1:00.0.

This marked the final time competing for Lynx seniors Cherry, Hisler, Chamness and Tesdahl.
