A year after finishing second in the shot put at UIL state track, The Woodlands' star Patrick Piperi earned the title he longed to achieve. The soon-to-be high school graduate reached that goal by finishing first in 2019's event with a throw of 64 feet, six inches.

"Feels good," said Piperi. "I was really hoping to get one win, and it's a good way to go out."

Piperi's high school track career will end with the state discus competition, which will also be held at The University of Texas at Austin's Mike A. Myers Stadium later on Saturday. Then, he'll graduate from The Woodlands and join his brother, Tripp, as a member of The University of Texas track and field team.

"Definitely feels like I'm on the right path," said Piperi. "Especially on this track. I'm excited."
