Meet Recap: Class 4 Boys Track and Field Champs

On his first throw of the MSHSAA Class 4 Track and Field Championships, West Plains' Dagen Kenslow broke a pair of records.

The senior had a throw of 59.34-meters (194 feet, 8 inches) in the javelin and that ended up being the winning throw on day two of the state finals.

The mark was also good enough to set both the Class 4 and the overall state meet record - both set in 2019.

West Plains' Dagen Kenslow won the javelin with a Class 4 and overall state meet record mark, helping the Zizzers to a team trophy.

The Class 4 record belonged to Camdenton's Gabriel Kurtz of 58.31 meters. Kenslow also broke the overall state meet mark set by Joplin's Zach Westmoreland of 59.28 in 2019 in Class 5. Those two will have a common tie besides the record - both will be football players at the next level.

Westmoreland is currently at Eastern Michigan, while Kenslow signed to play with Bobby Petrino's Missouri State Bears.

That was the only record broken in the boys Class 4 meet but there were plenty of other highlights and standout performances.
