Canton's Kyle Kapichok won the District IV, Class AA Track and Field Championship boys' discus throw with a hurl of 148-feet, 10-inches.

"It's amazing," Kapichok said about being a district champ. "I'm kind of at a loss for words right now, I've been working for this my whole life."

William Colton (119-feet, 6-inches) took 12th in the discus as Anthony Asbury (119-feet, 4-inches) was 13th. Lawrence Halbfoerster (10:49.96) came in 16th in the 2-mile.

On the first day Rian Eberly was seventh in the shot put at 44-feet, 2 1/2-inches, followed by Colton (43-feet, 3-inches) in 10th, and Kapichok (40-feet, 4-inches) in 14th.

In the javelin Wyatt Karpinski (135-feet, 2-inches) and Kapichok (134-feet, 5-inches) were 15th and 16th.

The girls' team came away with a slew of medals, but just missed state marks in several areas.
