OMAHA, Neb. -- A central Nebraska junior pulled off one of the biggest upsets in the state track and field championships on Friday.

Hastings St. Cecilia's Jenson Anderson topped state-record holder Carter Nelson in the Class C boys high jump.

The Bluehawks' Anderson was the only person out of a group of six to clear 6'6", leaving him as a state champion.

Nelson has previously cleared 7', and he reached 6'10" at state last season, but he was unable to reach 6'6" on Friday. 

Meanwhile, it was a northeast Nebraska showdown in the Class C boys shot put on day three of the state track and field championships on Friday.

Norfolk Catholic's Kade Pieper came into the event as the all-time leader in Class C, but he entered his final throw in second place for the state championship.

That's because Battle Creek's Trent Uhlir threw a new meet-record 61'11.5" on his final throw.

Pieper then bested that by uncorking a toss of 63'7.5".

Meanwhile, in the Class D girls pole vault, Meridian's Kaylee Pribyl defended her 2022 state title by holding off Osceola sophomore Janna Roberts.
