Cedar Park Christian senior Sam Van Peursem won discus and shot-put titles at the 1A state track and field championships on May 24-25 at Eastern Washington University in Cheney.
He unleashed the discus 181-02 and launched the shot put 60-08.
“A big key to my success this season was learning to not overwork. In my past track seasons, I would work way too hard and not be able to compete to the best of my ability. I’ve been learning to trust my training and trust in God’s plan for me. I know that these things had a big part in how this season went, and I couldn’t be happier with how I ended my high school track career,” said Van Peursem, who will be attending the University of Washington to throw next year.
Also for Cedar Park, junior Kaitlyn Ventler took seventh in the 200 in 25.97 and junior Mikaehla Brown placed eighth in the javelin with a 109-11.
