St. Clair received team efforts throughout its lineup and raced past Pacific and Union for a first-place boys team finish at the Four Rivers Conference track and field meet Monday at Pacific High School.

The Bulldogs, who won nine of the 18 events, accumulated a team score of 175 to claim the conference championship.

“It was the best total effort we have been able to put together so far this year,” said St. Clair Coach Dave Purviance. “I really could not have asked much more and received much more from any individual on the team. Our guys were focused and determined to compete through every event in the meet.”

Pacific finished in second place with 159.5 points followed by Union with 144, Owensville with 67.5, St. James with 58, Sullivan with 30, New Haven with 24 and Hermann with 16.

“We knew it would be close. I was hoping some other teams would take away field points from St. Clair, but that didn’t happen,” said Pacific Coach Jim Rutherford. “Overall, I was happy with how we competed. We didn’t run as well as we usually do in a couple of areas. I was hoping for a conference championship for our seniors, but some days just don’t go your way.”

Union’s Trevor King was named the boys most outstanding performer of the meet. He recorded two first-place finishes, one second and one third.

“Trevor had a 34-point day. We just lacked the depth of the other two teams to catch them,” said Union Coach Chris Kelley. “We finished where I expected. I knew St. Clair and Pacific were going to be the two favorites heading into the meet. Ryan Coons taking second in the 300-meter hurdles was a nice surprise. He’s falling in love with that event.”

“Our 4x8 won by over 100 yards. It’s been that way all year,” Rutherford said. “I’m interested to see how we do once we get to districts.”

•Shot put — Owensville’s Trevor Nicks won at 48-8. Hermann’s Tyler Englert placed second. St. James’ Ryan Pope was third.

•Triple jump — St. Clair’s Josh Martin won at 40-3 1/2. St. Clair’s Juergens placed second. Union’s King was third.

“We had individuals who came through and scored big in events that we were not really expecting. And we got great efforts from all of our relay teams who ran hard on every leg and gave our anchor legs a chance to compete for a first-place finish,” Purviance said. “The coaching staff and I couldn’t be more pleased with the competitive effort that the boys put forth throughout the entire meet. It was a great day for the Bulldogs.”
