St. Clair’s Spencer Crumbaugh quickly has become one of the top athletes and contributors for the boys track and field team.

In only his second season with the St. Clair track program, Crumbaugh captured all-state honors in the long jump during the MSHSAA championships at Lincoln University in Jefferson City.

Crumbaugh, who just completed his junior year at St. Clair, finished seventh in the Class 3 boys long jump with a leap of 20-5 3/4.

“I just wanted to come here and do my best. I had nothing to lose. I was already going to state. That was my big goal. I wanted to go to state as a junior. Now I’m here and I’m happy to be where I am,” Crumbaugh said. “Last year in the sectionals, I didn’t make it through in the long jump. I was determined to come here and do well.”

Crumbaugh recorded his distance of 20-5 3/4 on his first attempt.

“I got it on my first jump. It’s not my best. I didn’t do great today. I guess I didn’t come out ready,” he said. “My PR (personal record) for the year is 21-9 1/2. Hopefully, I’ll come back next year and do better.”

The state medal was the first for Crumbaugh, who qualified for state last year in the 800- and 1,600-meter relays, but did not win a medal.

Crumbaugh captured two state medals this season. He was a part of the Bulldogs’ 800-meter relay team that finished fourth in a finals time of 1:30.25. Also on the relay team were Jonathon Benkert, Terrance Stahlman and Rickey Grivetti.

“Spencer is an awesome kid. Through the years, he’s a kid who’s come out of nowhere and has been nails for us,” said St. Clair Coach Dave Purviance. “He didn’t run track as a freshman. Last year was his first year on the team. He surprised everyone as a sophomore with his talent. He has good speed on the track. He has short legs, but serious hops.”

So what’s been the key to Crumbaugh’s success?

“Just pushing myself as hard as I can and thinking that I have nothing to lose,” Crumbaugh said. “I’ve had a good season. I’ve been getting first place in every meet until now. I just pushed myself to go as far as I can and it’s worked out.”

Purviance said Crumbaugh came through at the state meet.

“Spencer did a good job competing against a competitive field,” Purviance said. “He wanted to hit his PR, which is 21-9. He got that at the district meet on his final jump. The sand was deeper here than it was at our district meet.”

Crumbaugh has worked hard to improve in the event.

“Long jump is about speed and form. You have to get your mark on and make sure everything is good. It’s a lot of work. It takes a lot of practice,” Crumbaugh said. “It’s been an awesome junior year for me. Next year, my goal is to make it to state again and do better than I did this year.”

Crumbaugh, also a standout soccer player at St. Clair, proved to be a valuable and versatile member of the track and field squad.

“What he’s been able to accomplish in the long jump, and the depth he’s given us in our relays, we feel very fortunate to have him as a key member of our team,” Purviance said. “Spencer is a fun kid to coach. He has a good personality. He’s a good soccer player, too. He should have a very good senior season.”
