Winning seven events, the St. Clair Bulldogs blazed to the Union Relays championship Tuesday at Stierberger Stadium.

St. Clair scored 135 points to win the boys title by a 32-point margin over second-place Pacific (103).

“We’ve gotten off to a great start to the season, but a great finish is more important in my book,” said St. Clair Coach Dave Purviance. “The encouraging thing is that we as a team continue to improve our times and distances with each meet. The weather and competition are improving and that should keep us moving in the right direction to finish the season strong.”

Washington placed third with 90.5 points while Sullivan was next at 82, Owensville scored 71.5, Potosi ended at 64, Union scored 53, St. James had 40, Hermann closed with 24, Borgia netted 21 and New Haven rounded out the team standings with 18 points.

“We were very pleased with our entire overall performance,” said Washington Coach Mike Olszowka. “This was our third meet in six days. With that much competition, it becomes easy to lose focus. The kids are really starting to believe in themselves. When that happens, anything is possible.”

Union Head Coach Chris Kelley said it was a smooth meet.

“I thought the meet ran well,” Kelley said. “The workers did an awesome job running off their events.”

Event Results

• 100-meter dash — St. Clair’s Rickey Grivetti blazed to a time of 11.5 to edge Pacific’s Jeffrey Hinkle for the win. St. Clair’s Adam Brott finished a close third.

• 200-meter dash — Grivetti edged Hinkle again, running a time of 23.62 to win. Union’s Ryan Schumaker was third.

• 400-meter dash — St. Clair’s Jonathan Benkert stepped to the podium with a 51.77 time, over a second ahead of Borgia’s Luke Schriewer. Taking third was Washington’s Caleb Curran.

“We are especially proud of Luke,” Borgia Coach Bill Stevison said. “He is a prime example of what it means to be a student-athlete. Luke came to the meet directly from a Worldwide Youth in Science and Engineering (WYSE) state academic competition where he finished first in mathematics and second in physics. Luke is a great role model for our younger athletes, showing them that it is possible to excel both in the classroom and on the athletic field. They can all learn by watching how Luke comports himself with persistence and humility. We couldn’t ask anymore of our senior leader.”

• 800-meter run — New Haven’s Seth Shenck won with a time of 2:04.73. Chris Erxleben of Sullivan was second and Washington’s Travis Elbert took third.

• 1,600-meter run — Elbert was the winner in a time of 4:41.25. Potosi’s Austin King was second and Schenck took third.

• 3,200-meter run — Austin Smith of Potosi won in a time of 10:15.92. Washington’s Ian Smith took second and Potosi’s Eric Luebke took third.

• 110-meter high hurdles — Washington’s Brenden Leslie won in 16.27 with teammate Dillon Quaethem taking second. St. James’ Nathan Campbell was third.

• 300-meter intermediate hurdles — Owensville’s Devon Dowler won the title in 41.92. Second place went to Richard Byfield of St. James while St. Clair’s Jacob Meisel was third.

• 400-meter relay — St. Clair’s team of Adam Brott, Grivetti, Spencer Crumbaugh and Terrance Stahlman blazed to a time of 44.9 to win. Sullivan was second and Pacific took third.

• 800-meter relay — St. Clair’s sprint domination continued. Benkert, Grivetti, Crumbaugh and Stahlman posted a time of 1:34.4 to easily win over Pacific. Sullivan was third.

• 1,600-meter relay — Benkert, Crumbaugh, Josh Bozada and Stahlman posted a time of 3:35.55 to win over Pacific. Borgia was third.

• 3,200-meter relay — Sullivan’s team of Erxleben, Randy Swaller, Brad Jones and Mark Johnson won in 8:37.44, holding off a surging Pacific team at the end. Union finished third.

• Shot put — Owensville’s Trevor Nicks set a new school record (but not meet record) with a throw of 53-6.75 to easily win the title. Jake Yerkey of St. Clair was second while Mitch Paneitz of Sullivan took third.

• Discus — Yerkey won the title with a throw of 147-3. Nicks was second and Potosi’s Daniel Reed took third.

• High jump — Owensville’s Keith Wehmeyer cleared 5-10 to win the title. Pacific’s Ryan Lause was second and Dan Dieckmann of Pacific ended third.

• Pole Vault — Owensville’s Jeremiah Hinch won the title by clearing 13-0, taking first on misses over St. Clair’s Dalton Ulrich. Garrett Johnson of Potosi was third.

• Long jump — Schumaker won the title at 19-4. Crumbaugh and Stahlman were second and third, respectively.

“Ryan Schumaker had a good meet,” Kelley said. “As he gains experience and learns more about his events, his performances are going to continue to improve.”

• Triple Jump — Mason Ragland of St. James was the winner at 38-9. Brott was second and Shane Henderson of Pacific ended third.

Kelley had praise for some other athletes.

“Logan Bellamy was up and down with his times,” Kelley said. “He finished well by running a good anchor leg in the 1,600-meter relay. Joe Lasky set presonal records in both throwing events. His feet are starting to catch up to the rest of his body. Jacob Carman was a surprise in the 110-meter high hurdles. Our boys are fighting for every point they earn at the big meets.”

Stevison lauded other athletes.

“While the team as a whole did not perform as well as we would have liked, we did have some decent performances,” Stevison said. “Sprinter Cameron Rolf had his best meet of the season. Grant Broeder had his best triple jump of the year and earned his first medal of the season. Our 1,600-meter relay team of Jack Conroy, Eli Garcilaso, Drake Raftery and Luke Schriewer hit their target time. Luke continued his steady performances by also placing second in the 400-meter dash.”
