King takes fifth at nationals

King threw 16.14 meters (52-11 1/2) to place fifth in the field of 14 competitors. The performance came in his nationals debut.

He hit that mark in his third throw of the first round, placing him in the nine-athlete finals.

The Pipers will return to competition on April 4 in a home meet to open the 2009 outdoor track and field season.
