New Hampton’s Noah Fenske did it, again.
He broke another school record in the shot put and is the Drake Relays champion. Fenske’s record throw measured 60’ 11.25’’. To win the state championship, you have to be in the top 24 in your class, at Drake only 24 athletes in the entire state to qualify.
One of the national highlights of the Drake relays is Heather Kampf.
As a American miler Kampf says it is easy to be part of quality fields. After finishing second in the Grand Blue Mile Kampf will race in Saturday’s 1500 meter run, an event that American women dominate on the international stage.
Kampf expects her success on the roads to carry over to the track.

Fant set Iowa’s career touchdown receptions by a tight end and was taken by the Denver Broncos with the 20th pick.
Fant and Hockenson selections are the first time in the history of the NFL Draft, two tight ends from the same school have been selected.
