Email News Alerts

Alexandria's Colin Guetter admitted to being nervous heading into his first state meet, but he didn't let that affect him on his way to finishing on the podium at Hamline University.


Guetter had a finals throw of 144-01 on Saturday. That was good enough to fend off a talented field for an eighth-place finish.

"I was just trying to make finals," he said. "That's all I really wanted to do, and I ended up getting eighth, which I'm happy with."
