It was another big day of track and field competition for Washington’s girls Saturday at the Ladue Brusca/Strohbach Invitational.

The Lady Jays won five events to top the girls team standings with 107 points.

Lafayette finished second in the 23-team field with 101.5 points. Ladue was third with 81.5 points followed by Rockwood Summit with 68 and Clayton with 45.

The Blue Jays placed 19th out of 21 teams in the boys field with six points.

Lafayette claimed the boys crown with 118 points followed by Jefferson City with 116.5, Webster Groves with 62.5, John Burroughs with 48 and Timberland with 45.

The top eight finishers in each event earned team points.

“I’m really proud of both the boys and girls teams,” said Washington Head Coach Mike Olszowka. “It was our first really great day of weather and the kids all responded the way we hoped they would. We set new PRs (personal records) throughout the day.”

Lady Jays

Kirstie Leslie led the Lady Jays with three first-place finishes.

Leslie won the pole vault by clearing 10-0, the long jump with a leap of 16-6 and the triple jump with an effort of 34-7 1/4.

“Kirstie did not have her best day of the season, but it was good enough to claim three individual titles,” Olszowka said. “She is in a mid-season valley, and the timing of it is a good thing. As she pulls out of this low spot, she should be peaking at the right time.”

MC Landolt broke her own school record in the 100-meter dash, winning the event in a time of 12.5. She also finished third in the 200-meter dash in 26.89.

“MC keeps on rolling. She reset her own school record again and shocked everyone there except her teammates and coaches when she won the 100-meter dash for the second time this season against St. Louis competition,” Olszowka said. “I think as the weather continues to improve, she is going to be able to drop another couple tenths and put herself into contention to be a state finalist.”

Megan Bauche won the 100-meter high hurdles in 16.9. She also was third in the 300-meter low hurdles in 50.8 and fifth in the long jump at 15-5 1/4.

“Bauche got us started off right. Coach (Jim) Ogle has a way of taking good athletes and making them into great hurdlers,” Olszowka said. “She is now three-stepping, which is a huge accomplishment for a shorter girl. Megan’s strength more than makes up for it.”

Emily Stricker tied for second place in the high jump, clearing 5-0. She also was eighth in the 100-meter dash in 13.27.

The 400-meter relay team of Lauren Brinkmann, Sarah Brock, Emily Stricker and Landolt finished second in 51.9.

The 800-meter relay team of Brinkmann, Brock, Leslie and Landolt placed second in 1:50.8.

“The 4x1 and 4x2 teams ran very strong on their individual legs. We had a couple handoffs that were a little off, but it’s good to know that we have four girls in these and any one of them has the talent and work ethic to bring the team back.”

Abby Stricker finished third in the pole vault at 9-0 and sixth in the triple jump at 32-4.

Jenna Haas was fourth in the high jump at 4-10.

Megan Freitag placed seventh in the 100-meter high hurdles in 18.4.

Josie Plowman ended eighth in the 3,200-meter run in 12:44.

Blue Jays

Alex Templeton finished fifth in the shot put with a throw of 44-3 3/4.

“The brightest spot for the boys team was Alex, medaling in the shot put with a new PR,” Olszowka said.

David Tutt placed seventh in the pole vault at 11-6.

“The boys team competed very strong, setting many new PRs,” Olszowka said. “The boys side of the meet was stacked with all-state caliber athletes.  It can be discouraging to run your all-time best and finish in ninth place, which is something that happened to them throughout the meet. At the end of the day, they all realize they had great days.”
