Basehor-Linwood senior Scott Ogilvie closed out his high school track career with a fifth-place finish in the 110-meter hurdles at the Class 5A state meet.

The weather wasn't perfect on Saturday at Wichita State University's Cessna Stadium, but it didn't deter Ogilvie.

He entered the finals seeded eighth and needed a top-seven finish for a medal.

Ogilvie ran a clean race and left all of his hurdles untouched. The smooth race helped him finish fifth in 15.61 seconds.

"My goal was just to run my fastest race and be smooth," Ogilvie said. "I figured someone might trip up and fall and I didn't want to be that guy, so I just ran my best race."
