It was twice as nice for St. Clair.

Placing two long jumpers in the MSHSAA Class 3 boys final, the Bulldogs ended up with state medals for senior Spencer Crumbaugh (third) and Terrance Stahlman (seventh).

“Spencer Crumbaugh had a great day jumping his farthest distance of the year, 21-8.5, and he finished third,” said St. Clair Coach Ben Garmer. “Terrance Stahlman ended up eighth in the long jump with a distance of 20-9. It was great to see both boys on the medal stand and Terrance will have another opportunity to make state next year. Spencer is a senior and we will miss his many contributions to the St. Clair track team.”

Crumbaugh and Stahlman both had qualified for past state meets, but had never competed together at Dwight T. Reed Stadium in Jefferson City.

“It was an awesome feeling to have Terrance helping me out,” Crumbaugh said. “It’s really nice to have two people moving on in the event. It’s usually been just me or him and we’ve just been lost because we have each other all throughout the season. We finally had each other at state and it was nice.”

Stahlman agreed.

“It was awesome to be here with Spencer,” said Stahlman. “It was pretty cool. We feed off each other.”

In 2013, Crumbaugh reached the state meet and placed seventh in the finals with a top leap of 20-5.75.

As a freshman in 2012, Stahlman reached the state meet and placed 13th with a top jump of 19-7.

This year, the teammates were able to help each other land state medals.

Southern Boone’s Landon Bartel won the state title with a leap of 23-1.75 while senior Gage King of Center was second at 21-9.5.

Crumbaugh needed a big jump just to move on past the opening round. After fouling on his first two attempts, Spencer ripped off a leap of 20-10 to reach the finals.

“I was just trying to get a good jump in and I kept on scratching,” Crumbaugh said. “I just put in all I’ve got.”

Meanwhile, Stahlman rebounded after fouling on his first try to post leaps of 20-7.24 and 20-0.5, good enough to scrape into the finals.

“It was all right,” Stahlman said. “I didn’t do really good today. I jumped really low. I didn’t do good.”

Safely in the nine-athlete finals, Crumbaugh used his three extra jumps to sandwich a 21-8.5 leap between fouls.

“This is my last year of doing this so I put in everything I had and got a good jump, 21-8.5 and I went with that,” Crumbaugh said.

Stahlman posted two successful jumps during his final round, going 20-9 on his first try, which was his top distance. Terrance came back with a leap of 20-8 to finish the day.

“I wish I would have jumped better,” Stahlman said. “There’s not anything I can do about it now though.”

Stahlman has a chance to come back next season. As a junior, he could return next year. And he’s developed a reputation as being a hard worker among others in the community.

“Our kids are really dedicated,” junior shot put thrower Allison Hinson said. “Even if we don’t have weights that day at home, we’ll have kids coming in and lifting. We actually have a long jumper, Terrance Stahlman, who made his own long jump path at home. Spencer Crumbaugh jumps there with Terrance.”

Washington Head Coach Mike Olszowka nominated Terrance for Missourian Athlete of the Week April 9 for his performance at the Washington Pentathlon. Stahlman finished second overall that day with 85 points. He set a Washington Pentathlon record in the long jump that day with a leap of 21-5.25.

Crumbaugh said the conditions at the state meet were better than the sectional meet the previous week.

“It’s pretty nice, but windy,” Crumbaugh said. “It was much better than last week.”

On a damp and dreary day in Eldon the previous Saturday, Stahlman and Crumbaugh finished second and third in the Class 3 sectional event. Stahlman was the runner-up to Bartel with a top jump of 20-10.5 while Crumbaugh took third at 20-9.75. As in the state event, the pair went down to the wire to earn their qualifying spots.

Stahlman was the district champion, winning the title at Borgia with a jump of 21-7. He bettered Bartel that day as the Southern Boone senior managed 21-0.5 in that event.

Crumbaugh was third with a top jump of 20-9.25.

Stahlman was the Four Rivers Conference champion this year, going 21-3. Crumbaugh was third in that competition at 19-10.
