SPENCER - Cherokee senior thrower Brock Dagel won both of his favorite events - the shot put and discus - at last week's Spencer Track & Field Invitational here.

Dagel, who's bound for Iowa State University on a football scholarship as an offensive tackle, threw the shot put 49-7 1/4, and the discus 145-0 to capture both titles at the rugged competition.

Showing he has a little running skill as well as throwing abilities, Dagel anchored the Braves 4x100 relay to a sixth place in a time of 50.6, clocking an 11.2 with the running start that was the fastest leg for the Braves unit.

Cherokee's Marc Husman was second in the 200 meters in a time of 23.21, and placed fourth in the 800 in 2:08. Sam Hinkhouse also was second in the 400 meters in 52.45, and sixth in the 200 meters in 24.0. Husman was sixth in the long jump with a leap of 16-11 1/4.

Cherokee's Jaden Lux was fourth in the 3200 meters in 11:25, and Lane Peterson was sixth in the discus with a throw of 118-07.

In the relays, the Braves were sixth in the 4x100 with Jakob Hummel, Kristian Freed, Luke Ziemen and Dagel clocking 50.6; fifth in the 4x200 with Zac Taylor, Jose Freed, Tyler McLaughlin, and Andy Pitts timed in 1:46; and fifth in the 4x800 with Hummel, McLaughlin, Ben Sampson, and Ziemen timed in 9:24.

Le Mars won the team title with 137 points, followed by Emmetsburg 94, Spencer 85, Estherville-LC 78, Storm Lake 69, Cherokee 52, and Hull Western Christian 45.

In JV action for the Braves, Statson Dagel won the shot put with a 36-11 effort, and Skylar Mongan was sixth with a 33-6 heave. In the discus, Grayson Roosa was second with a throw of 113-9, and Mongan was fourth with a 104-10 throw.

Luke Ziemen was sixth in the long jump with a 14-5 1/4 effort, and Jaden Lux was fifth in the 800 meters in a time of 2:32.

In the relays, Cherokee's 4x100 of Lane Peterson, Statson Dagel, Mongan, and Roosa was fifth in 52.2; the medley was fourth in 4:14 with Peterson, Andy Pitts, Jose Freed, and Ziemen aboard; and the 4x200 was sixth in 1:50 with Sampson, Mongan, Roosa, and Dagel running.
