In the field events, Terrell Adams of Middle Creek won the discus and shot put throws. Adams, 6-feet tall and 285 pounds, won the discus despite not matching the state record he set last week of 200-plus feet. Adams, a senior who will attend Charlotte for the discus throw, tossed 189-3 on his last throw to win back-to-back years.

“I threw good last week because I was sick and I throw better when I’m sick,” Adams said. “I think I was trying to force it too much today.”

In the shot put, Adams threw 58-1.5 to edge Daniel McArthur from Mooresville (58).
