With Anna Houston and Hannah Mayfield leading the way, the Union track Lady ’Cats tied for 11th place from the MSHSAA Class 3 state championships last weekend in Jefferson City.

“Our kids competed to the best of their ability,” Union Head Coach Chris Kelley said.

Union scored 20 points with Houston earning three medals and Mayfield securing one.

That helped Union score enough team points to tie Eldon for the 11th spot in the final team standings.

Grandview won the title at 63 while McCluer South-Berkeley was second at 58. Ste. Genevieve scored 53.5, Lutheran South was fourth at 51 and Festus rounded out the top five at 41.

A total of 59 schools scored team points in the meet.

Houston, a senior, earned three state medals in three of her four events.

“Houston came away with three state medals which gives her a career count of 10 state medals in four years,” Kelley said. “She’s the most decorated track and field athlete Union’s had, boy or girl. She’s done great things for the program and we wish her continued success in her future.”

Houston finished:

• Second in the 100-meter high hurdles;

• Fifth in the 300-meter low hurdles;

• Seventh in the triple jump; and

• 10th in the long jump.

“Anna ran a PR in the 100-hurdle finals for her second place finish,” Kelley said. “She just missed the finals in long jump but medaled in triple jump. This was the first year she trained for the event.”

In the finals, Anna ran a time of 15.05, cutting .44 of a second off of her time in the preliminaries. She also bumped up two spots from Friday to Saturday.

De Soto senior Kendra Perren won the title at 14.75.

Houston was fifth in the 300-meter low hurdles with a time of 46.96. She had been seventh after Friday’s preliminary heats with a time of 46.26.

Perren won the race in 44.8, a unique finish as Houston and some of the other runners had to rerun the event at the end of the meet due to interference.

In the triple jump, Houston finished seventh with a distance of 35-8.5. McDonald County’s Courtney Smith won the title at 36-11.75.

In the long jump, Houston placed 10th and just missed the finals. Her best leap was 16-3.75. Soldan’s Traci Mills won at 17-10.5

Mayfield, a junior, has been one of Union’s top throwers all season long and her toss of 41-5.75 was good for third place in the final standings.

John Burroughs junior Jordan McClendon won with a distance of 43-8.75 and St. Clair junior Allison Hinson was second at 43-1.5

“Mayfield displayed strong mental strength to finish third in a very deep shot put field,” Kelley said. “Any one of the top four or five girls could have won the event.”

• Junior Logan Bellamy missed the 400-meter dash finals after placing 10th in the preliminary heat Friday with a time of 50.5.

• Senior discus thrower Joe Lasky placed 11th in the event with a throw of 134-11, over 5 feet more than his seed. Gunnar Allison, a sophomore from Logan-Rogersville, won at 167-11.

• Union’s 400-meter boys relay team of senior Trelin Edwards, junior Logan Bellamy, junior Nick Maher and sophomore Ryan Schumaker placed 12th in a time of 44.33, faster than the seed time by .19 of a second.

“The boys 400-meter relay team broke our school record,” Kelley said. “They were excited about that.”

• The girls 400-meter relay team of junior Alyssa Pate, freshman Shea Wells, sophomore Lyndsy Siedhoff and freshman Karlie Peth placed 13th in Friday’s preliminary event with a time of 51.79.

• The boys 1,600-meter relay team of Schumaker, junior Wesley Narup, junior Dylan Fitzgerald and Bellamy posted a 13th-place finish in Friday’s preliminaries, posting a time of 3:28.95. That was an improvement of over two seconds from the seeded time.

• Fitzgerald placed 14th in the boys 800-meter run Saturday, posting a time of 2:03.95.

“Dylan showed some guts and ran hard at the beginning and really pushed hard in his attempt to run a sub two-minute 800,” Kelley said. “He looked great for 750 meters and then he struggled to hold on. We’re proud of how he ran.”

• The girls 1,600-meter relay team of freshman Mikayla Sieve, Pate, junior Janna Ruether and Peth placed 14th in 4:13.84.

• The girls 3,200-meter girls relay team did not finish, falling out on the final lap. Running were Ruether, junior Taylor LaValle, freshman Lydia Klenke and Sieve.

• The 800-meter girls relay team was knocked out Friday after getting out of the exchange zone on the handoff between the second and third legs. Pate, Ruether, Wells and Peth ran in the race.

“We return the majority of our boys and girls next season and look forward to great things,” Kelley concluded.
