Jones To Throw The Shot Put Friday In Des Moines

Knoxville Freshman Shot Putter Cheyenne Jones will compete at the State Track and Field Meet this Friday morning. Jones qualified out of the Regional in class 3A last week. Her coach Jeremy Van Engen says this will be a much different atmosphere from the pre-throw all the way until she is done for the day. Van Engen adds with the warm temperatures forecast for later in the week, he will try to keep her out of the sunlight until it is time for her throws. He adds Jones is practicing well and hopes to finish in the top half of the field. Again, the Class 3A girls shot put will take place Friday morning starting at nine in Drake Stadium.
