Luce 5th in 300m hurdles at state meet
Austin -- Reagan Luce competed in three events Saturday, May 11, at the UIL State Track and Field Meet, scoring points in one of them.
The Hondo High School junior was the school’s only athlete at state, participating in both hurdling events and the high jump at UT-Austin’s Mike A. Myers Stadium.
She earned two points in the 3A girls’ 300-meter hurdles with a fifth-place finish in a time of 45.42 seconds. While that time was more than two seconds off the pace of the event’s winner, a 42.99 turned in by Abigail Sheppard of Cuero, it was still enough to break her own HHS record in the event. The time was 0.08 seconds faster than her school record of 45.50, set on April 11.
Earlier in the evening, she placed seventh in the 100-meter hurdles in a time of 15.55 seconds. Antonisha Stewart of Carrollton Ranchview ran a winning time of 14.05.
Saturday morning, Luce competed in the high jump, clearing 5’2” and placing ninth.
The winner was Marisa Ellis of Canyon Lake, who was one of five jumpers to clear 5’6”, but won the event because of fewer misses at lower heights. Ellis was runner-up to Luce in the Region IV high jump competition.
Friday evening, May 10, D’Hanis senior Jackie Bedinghaus came in sixth place in the 1A-Div. II girls’ 100-meter dash, with a time of 12.95 seconds. LaKeydra Moseley and Tiffany Williams of Calvert placed first and second, in times of 12.39 and 12.57.
That event was the last one on Friday evening prior to a three-hour rain and lightning delay.
After the delay, Medina Valley’s Steven Champlin took to the track in the 4A boys’ 100-meter dash, where he placed fifth with a time of 10.75 seconds. Cameron Burrell of Fort Bend Ridge Point had a winning time of 10.36 seconds. One-half second separated first place from ninth place.
Later in the evening, starting at 10:40 p.m., Champlin placed second in the 400-meter dash, in a time of 46.92. Chris Platt of Willis ran a 46.64 to win the event.
Lytle’s Cesar Gonzales won the 3A boys’ 3200-meter run early on Saturday, running a time of 9:19.78. He finished six-hundredths of a second ahead of runner-up Edwin Muñoz of Kaufman.
Late on Saturday evening, Gonzales placed fourth in the 1600-meter run, in a time of 4:27.06. Chris Ibarra of Atlanta won the event in 4:20.79.
In the IA-II boys’ high jump, Luke Killough of Utopia placed fifth, clearing 5’10
