Winning six event titles, the Washington track Lady Jays ran to victory Tuesday at the Union Relays.

Washington scored 119 points to breeze to the team title. St. Clair was second at 97 while Owensville took third at 87 points.

“We knew it was going to be close,” Washington Head Coach Mike Olszowka said. “The Four Rivers Conference is very strong and balanced this year. We had some kids really step it up and we got some help from other teams’ strong performances.”

Union ended fourth at 84 points and was followed by Sullivan (74), St. James (63), Borgia (47), Pacific (46), New Haven (38), Potosi (23), Festus (14) and Hermann (9).

“The St. Clair Girls had an awesome meet,” St. Clair Coach Katherine Ferguson said. “Many girls had season bests and really scored some points for the team. Alicia York, Emily Presley and Lyndsay Hardin pulled points in their events which helped the team tremendously.”

Union Head Coach Chris Kelley said there were some difficulties with the meet, but those were overcome.

“We had a few hiccups at the beginning of the meet,” Kelley said. “The timing system malfunctioned for the first heat of the girls 100-meter hurdles and we had to re-run the heat. Once the finals started for the running events, everything went smooth.”

Olszowka said it was a great meet.

“The meet started windy but the sun was out so the weather was very favorable for some good competition and strong performances,” Olszowka said. “Union always puts on a great meet and this year was no different. They have a new facility which helps keep things moving and most importantly they always have a lot of volunteers from the community and the school district helping run the events to make this a great meet.”

Pacific Coach Justin Perriguey said the competition was strong this year.

“It was a pretty tough meet this year,” Perriguey said. “I am really impressed with the level of competition throughout the area. We don’t have the depth that we used to and as a result didn’t place as high in the team standings as I would have liked. Nevertheless, I was happy with how we did against some good competition.”

Event Results

• 100-meter dash — Washington’s MC Landolt won in 12.74. It was the first of three individual and one relay event she won on the day. Devin Fuhring of St. James was second and Presley ended third.

Kelley praised Faith Groenke, who finished fifth.

“Faith Groenke is running well right now,” Kelley said. “She’s powerful out of the blocks and that’s beneficial for a 100-meter runner. It’s not about being quick.”

• 200-meter dash — Landolt blazed to victory in 26.57 with Presley taking second and Washington’s Makenzie Straatmann ending third.

“Makenzie Straatmann has had a rough career,” Olszowka said. “Her freshman year we thought she was going to be force, but she missed most of her sophomore and junior seasons to injury. She has a great work ethic and is finally at 100 percent. Makenzie will just keep improving every meet.”

• 400-meter dash — Borgia’s Emily Grahl won the title in 1:01.29. Sullivan’s Dana Schatz and Hardin followed.

• 800-meter run — Washington’s Abigail Brown was the winner in 2:22.88. Parker Fane of St. James was second with Hermann’s Kaitlyn Peacock taking third.

• 1,600-meter run — Fane won the title in 5:33.31. Leslie Perona of St. James was second and Josie Plowman of Washington ended third.

• 3,200-meter run — Potosi’s Maddyerae Kelly won in 12:08.78. Perona was second and Owensville’s Hannah Baehr was third.

• 100-meter high hurdles — Union’s Anna Houston won in 15.94.

“This was Anna Houston’s first meet back from injury,” Kelley said. “She’s been out for two weeks. I thought she ran well for where she’s at conditioning wise.”

Washington’s Megan Bauche and Sullivan’s Natalie Schriever were next.

• 300-meter low hurdles — Schriever won in 47.85. Houston was second and Fuhring took third.

• 400-meter relay — Washington’s team of Sarah Brock, Brown, Straatmann and Landolt won in 52.81. Union took second with Borgia ending third.

• 800-meter relay — Alyssa Stahlman, Presley, Alex Lashly and Hardin ran a time of 1:51.82 to give St. Clair the win. Union was second and Sullivan ended third.

• 1,600-meter relay — The Sullivan team of Schatz, Victoria Dace, LeighAnn Allen and Schriever won in 4:17.73. St. James was second and Washington ended third.

• 3,200-meter relay — Washington’s quartet of Sarah Bretzke, Plowman, Erica Diener and Brown won in 10:26.35. New Haven was second and Union ended third.

“Our distance crew had a good meet,” Olszowka said. “We ran our best 3,200-meter relay of the season. We are in a position that we have enough kids who want to run the distance events that we are having good competition in our practice sessions, which is making everyone work harder and we are all improving.”

• Shot put — Perhaps the top event of the meet, Owensville’s Katie Gregor won with a throw of 42-6. Union’s Hannah Mayfield was second and Sarah Weidner of Festus ended third.

“Girls shot was a star-studded event,” Kelley said. “Three girls threw over 42 feet. Those may be the top three throwers in state (in Class 3).”

Kelley praised Mayfield and Tonya Vondera.

“Hannah Mayfield broke her own school record in shot,” Kelley said. “Tonya Vondera set a personal record in the shot too. They have been our most consistent performers thus far.”

• Discus — St. Clair’s Alicia York led the way with a throw of 117-3. Weidner was second and Owensville’s Haley Record ended third. Overall, four surpassed 100 feet.

• High jump — Owensville’s Hailey Diestelkamp cleared 5-0 to win. Lashley was second and Washington’s Jenna Haas placed third.

• Long jump — Landolt won the title at 16-7.75 while Schatz was second and Bauche took third.

“We all knew that MC was a premier sprinter, so we thought we would try to use that speed in the long jump this season,” Olszowka said. “She was progressing nicely until Tuesday, when she finally popped a big jump. As we continue to polish her technique we think this could be another state-qualifying event for her.”

• Triple jump — Diestelkamp was the winner at 33-4. Schatz ended second and Lashley was third.

• Pole vault — Presley won the title at 10-6. Pacific’s Tommi Mangnall was second and Borgia’s Megan Seibert ended third. Seibert’s 7-6 tied a Borgia program record.

“Our top performances from the girls were Tommi Mangnall in the field events and Hannah Graf on the track,” Perriguey said. “As a freshman we are really happy with the progress Tommi is making in the pole vault. Hannah has done a good job starting out our 3,200-meter relay and she ran well in the 3,200-meter run after not being pleased with her own performance in the 1,600-meter run.”
