Monday, May 24, 2004

JEFFERSON CITY -- Kelly senior Nathan Lewer captured his second consecutive high jump championship at the MSHSAA Class 2 track and field meet on Friday.

Lewer cleared 6 feet, 6 inches to defend his 2003 title, which he won with a height of 6-8.

Lewer's teammate Michael Glastetter, a junior distance runner, finished fourth in the 800-meter run with a time of 2:00.96.

Glastetter and Lewer's efforts placed Kelly 16th in the team standings with 15 points.

Also, in the Class 2 meet, Charleston senior Tijuan Cobbins sprinted to a second-place medal in the 100 meters with a time of 11.08.

Cobbins also anchored Charleston's eighth-place 400 relay team.

Malden, with 26 points, finished ninth in the team standings for the top showing by a Southeast Missouri boys squad.

Senior Phillip Mosely led the Green Wave with a first in the triple jump (46-0) and a third in the long jump (21-5), behind second-place freshman teammate Ryan Criglar (22-2 1/4).

On the girls side, Scott City senior Loren Groves closed out a tremendous high school career with a record-setting discus throw of 151-7, breaking her own mark of 143-11.

The future Kansas State University weight thrower earned her 15th career all-state medal with a second in the 100 hurdles (15.57), a fourth in the shot put (39-4 1/4) and a fifth in the 300 hurdles (48.63).

Groves accounted for all 27 of Scott City's points for a 10th place team finish.
