Houston Hurdles

Union senior Anna Houston leaps a hurdle on the way to second place in the Class 3 girls 100-meter high hurdles Saturday in Jefferson City. Houston won three medals on the day.

While there were no additional local state champions on the second day of the MSHSAA Class 3 and 4 track championships, Saturday still yielded plenty of hardware for area schools.

Finals in most track events and half of the field events took place Saturday at Dwight T. Reed Stadium on the campus of Lincoln University in Jefferson City.

One event, the Class 3 300-meter low hurdles, had to be contested twice after a fall during the race knocked out multiple runners. It was rerun at the end of the meet. The day featured a little of everything, including a visit by Missouri Gov. Jay Nixon, who watched several events from the infield.

Area medalists on the second day were:

• Union senior Anna Houston won three state medals on the day. She was second in the Class 3 100-meter high hurdles in a time of 15.05. She was fifth in the 300-meter low hurdles re-run in 46.96. Houston took seventh in the triple jump at 35-8.5.
