KENT CITY — Hart junior Kellen Kimes broke out a good-luck charm for Saturday’s MHSAA Division 3 track and field state finals at Kent City High School.
The Pirates’ dynamite thrower showed up wearing a straw hat.
Whatever the reason, Kimes had it going Saturday. He captured the state championship in discus with a personal-record toss of 165 feet, 10 inches, and he claimed runner-up in shot put with a PR of 58-8.
In shot put, Kimes finished behind West Michigan Conference foe Andrew Quinn of Mason County Central. Those two have been going at it all season and even going back to last year.
All-in-all, Kimes is pleased with his performance at the state finals. He helped the Pirates place fifth as a team with 29 points, nine away from champion Lansing Catholic.
