Long trip, great results.

Traveling to Cape Girardeau Saturday, the Union track program picked up a team championship and a second-place finish in the Cape Relays.

“I thought both of our teams competed well on the track,” Union Head Coach Chris Kelley said. “We had many personal records.

Union’s girls claimed the team title with 153 points, 17 ahead of second-place Jackson.

Sikeston scored 114 points to place third while Murphysboro, Ill., was fourth at 92, host Cape Central took fifth at 90, Kennett scored 47, Saxony Lutheran had 36, Scott City scored 29 and Cairo, Ill., had three points.

On the boys side, Cape Central won the title with 124 points while Union was second at 120.

Jackson took third with 116 points and was followed by Murphysboro, Ill., at 111, Sikeston at 89, Scott City at 62, Malden at 32, Saxony Lutheran at 22 and Kennett at 20 points.

While there were many positives, Kelley said the team has some areas to work on as well.

“The field events were rough on us,” Kelley said. “I don’t know if it was the weather (it was cool and windy) or a lack of focus. Either way, it’s something we must battle through and perform to our level of expectations. It was nice to bring back two team plaques though.”
