DES MOINES - Senior Jacob Conlon's fifth-place finish in the 800-meter run on Saturday, capped Graettinger-Terril/Ruthven-Ayrshire's performance at the 2018 Iowa State Co-ed Track and Field Meet.

Conlon finished the meet with three state medals after finishing seventh in the 400-meter dash and anchoring the 4x800-meter relay to a seventh-place finish. Both those events were held Thursday.
