Kee girls track senior Val Meyer powers out this shot put effort for a third-place finish in the event at the Class 1A State Qualifying Meet hosted by Edgewood-Colesburg Thursday, May 14 and qualification for the Class 1A State Meet. Meyer launched the shot 35’11.75” not only for State Meet qualification but also for a new school record that surpassed the previous mark of 35’8” set by 2013 Kee graduate Samantha Galema during her senior track season.
