WACO - The Shiner St. Paul Lady Cardinals claimed the school's first state track and field championship.

The Lady Cardinals won the Class 2A title with 77 points on Saturday at the Hart-Patterson Complex on the Baylor University campus. Faith Academy finished third with 70 points.

"We took seven girls to compete and each athlete that participated contributed to the title," said St. Paul athletic director Dana Beal. "Had they not done their job it would not have been possible for them to achieve this huge accomplishment."

St. Paul's Kymberlie Malatek, Alexa Schaefer, Madison Kurtz and Emily Wagner teamed up to finish first in the 400- and 800-meter relays.

Kali Kocian finished second in the 100 for St. Paul and teamed up with Wagner, Kurtz and Schaefer to finish second in the 1,600 relay.

St. Paul's Paige Werner finished second in the discus.

Tyler Barton finished second in the high jump and Dylan Blanton was second in the triple jump for the St. Paul boys.

The Cardinals tied for fifth in the team standings with 32 points.
