Mehlville junior Patrick Partee finished third in the 300 hurdles, while Lindbergh's Jill Harmon (long jump) and Oakville's Nekole Harvey (200 meter dash) both took sixth in their respective events.
The local contingent of athletes competing at the 86th Annual MSHSAA State Track Championships wasn’t very large on Saturday, but the competitors that did advance to their respective finals enjoyed a successful day at Lincoln University’s Dwight T. Reed Stadium. Mehlville High junior Patrick Partee, who ran against four other previous gold medal winners, including Jehu Chesson of Ladue, Aaron Mallett of McCluer North, and Chris Wright of Hazelwood Central, brought home the bronze medal in the 300 meter hurdles. Chesson, a football star who’s headed to Michigan next fall, won the event with a time of 37.77, while Mallett took second after running 37.86.

The Oakville football team struggled to stop and score against Lindbergh as the Flyers beat the Tigers for the fifth straight time.
The Oakville football team was outplayed in nearly every phase of their 42-0 season-opening loss to Lindbergh Friday at Oakville High School. The Flyers scored early and often against the Tigers’ defense, while Oakville’s offense had a difficult time moving the ball. One of the bright spots for Oakville was the play of junior running back Moe LaGrand, who did find some success on the ground. LaGrand carried the ball 16 times for 81 yards. For Conners, it’s back to the drawing board, as he’ll have to prepare his squad for a road game against Marquette (1-0) on Sept. 2. “We tell them that we’ve got a long season ahead of us,” Conners said. “It’s just about making adjustments. One thing I will say is physically, we didn’t get beat. We got …

The Oakville Tigers' football team will try to defeat conference foe Lindbergh while Mehlville takes on Northwest.
The Oakville High School Tigers’ football team will host Suburban West Conference rival Lindbergh on Friday at 7 p.m. in the regular season opener for both teams. Oakville (2-8 last year) will look to avenge last season’s 39-7 loss to the Flyers (9-3 last year). Lindbergh has defeated Oakville each of the past four seasons. The Tigers return eight offensive starters from their 2010 squad, including senior QB Javon Henderson and all five offensive linemen. Defensively, Oakville will rely on Henderson and brother Jaron Henderson, a senior, to lock down a talented Lindbergh aerial attack. Lindbergh, which made it to the Missouri Class 6 state quarterfinals last season, returns senior QB Peter Simpson, who threw 19 touchdowns and 19 picks in …
