Reinholdt takes second in the triple jump, Hughes seventh in the 110 hurdles

Headed into the state finals in the 5A Girls’ triple jump, St. Helens senior Kylie Reinholdt had never jumped further than 36 feet, four inches. That leap came at the NWOC district championships, and something must have rubbed off, as Reinhold jumped a school-record 37 feet even to claim second-place at the 2014 OSAA Track and Field championships. She fell just - JUST - short of a state title, giving up the first place finish to Summit's Miranda Brown, who won the competition with a jump of 37 feet, one quarter inch.

Reinholdt adds to her fourth place finish in the long jump on Friday, where she set a new personal record of 17-1.25.

Later in the afternoon, fellow senior Thomas Hughes placed seventh in the 110 meter hurdles with a time of 16.43 second. His personal best, 16.19, would have been good for fifth place.

Hughes will compete in the final event for the Lions, the 300 meter hurdles, this afternoon at 4:28 p.m.

State placers:

12 Kylie Reinholdt; 2nd Triple Jump (PR), 4th Long Jump (PR), 10th High Jump

12 Jacob Zartman; 7th Shot Put

12 Thomas Hughes; 7th 110 Hurdles
