Missoula Sentinel champion hurdlers Drew Klumph, Zac Crews pushing each other to high goals

MISSOULA — Zac Crews and Drew Klumph finished one and two in the boys 110-meter hurdles at the 2021 State AA track and field championships, separated by just a few strides or even a clipped hurdle.

The Missoula Sentinel hurdlers, who starred on the State AA football championship teams in 2020 and 2021, are no strangers to winning hardware as teammates, or in a way, as competitors on the track.

Crews took the 2021 110-meter hurdle title with a time of 14.95 seconds, while Klumph was right behind in 15.24 to snag the first of many medals as Sentinel won the team title. Klumph won the individual title in the 300-meter hurdles in 40.20 seconds, ahead of Kalispell Glacier’s Caleb Bernhardt by 0.08 seconds.
