See, who signed with Oklahoma, has been on top of the California shot put and discus leaderboard all season.

JSerra’s Jake Stafford was successful in two disparate events. Stafford, a senior who signed with UCLA, was sixth in the discus at 182-2 and won the high jump with a clearance of 6 feet, 7 inches.

See and Stafford led JSerra to 30 team points that were good enough for second place in the CIF State team standings. Granada Hills Charter of the Los Angeles City Section got six points from their third-place finish in the meet’s final event, the boys 4×400 relay, to finish first with 36 points.

Congrats boys!! These two balled out today! #GoLions #Allin pic.twitter.com/tp3RSjaTiP

JSerra’s girls 4×800 relay team finished second to Del Norte. JSerra’s 9.01.10 was better than its previous season best this season, 9:03.27.

Mater Dei senior Logan Lyght finished second in the 110 hurdles with a wind-legal 13.95, the county’s best time this season. The winner was Davis Davis-Lyric of Upland at 13.83.

Orange County’s best boys distance runner this year, Evan Noonan, a sophomore at Dana Hills, tripped and fell halfway through the 3,200. He was knocked off of the track, got up quickly and finished third at 8:56.63, five seconds behind winner Matthew Donis of Highland.

Mission Viejo senior Jada Gatlin was third in the triple jump with a mark of 40 feet, 3.25 inches. She got the third-place mark on her sixth and final attempt. The winner was Elsinore’s Dajeauna Williams at 40-7.75.

Laguna Hills sophomore Holly Barker was fifth in the 3,200 with a time of 10:11.56, her personal best by nine seconds.

Serra of Gardena senior Rodrick Pleasant lived up to the pre-meet publicity. Pleasant, who is going to Oregon on a football scholarship as a cornerback, won the 100 in a state meet record 10.20. Long Beach Jordan’s Jordan Washington was second at 10.30 to tie the previous state meet record.

Pleasant also won the 200 in 20.67. Pleasant took an early lead in the 200 and was never threatened.

What. A. Finish!

Our boys team finish as the runner-up at the 103rd California State Track and Field Championships. The highest finish in the schools history.
