Wadena-Deer Creek's Logan Meyer not only beat his previous best throw in the shot put Tuesday, he completely shattered it.

Meyer won the event with a record toss of 54-6.75 feet. The WDC senior's previous best was a 51-11. It is believed that Meyer is now second on the Wadena-Deer Creek records list behind Reg Hooten. Reg topped the 55-foot mark in 1977.
