A Cochrane-Fountain City High School student placed in the top three at the World Sport Stacking Championships last weekend.

The Winona Daily News reports Jesse Horn, 16, took second place honors in one category of the 15- to 16-year-old divisions and placed third in two others. His relay team, Speed Stacks Team USA, placed first against Team Thailand.

Jesse, who has autism, took up stacking in 2006 and quickly mastered the sport, practicing every evening. He's competed in several tournaments and is also Wisconsin's fastest sport stacker.

Jesse's YouTube channel is filled with videos. Watch him in action at the Iowa State Sport Stacking Championship last month.
