Orrick sophomore Samantha Fulte capped off a good season for the Lady Bearcats with a second-place finish at the Class 1 state meet held Friday and Saturday in Jefferson City on the campus of Lincoln University.

Junior Sydnee McGlothlin closed out her season with a sixth-place finish in the discus.

Fulte’s best finish of the weekend came in the triple jump with a leap of 34 feet, 4 ½ inches. Her top distance came on the third of six attempts after she had fouled on her second jump.

Allie Heckemeyer, junior from St. Elizabeth, had the winning distance of 34-4 ½. Norborne senior Cheyenne Baxter took eighth place with a leap of 33-4 that came on her next-to-last attempt.

Fulte also qualified for the long jump where she turned in a seventh-place distance of 15-9 that came on her second attempt of the day.
