The freshman from San Marcos High recorded a PR of 14.22 meters (46-7¾) for the 10th-best mark in school history. He took third in the WSC long jump last week, so he'll compete in both events at the Southern Cal Prelims on Saturday at Antelope Valley College.

Diego Tapia was sixth in the hammer (37.70m) and Kyle Whitaker took sixth in the pole vault (4.22m, 13-10¼).

Cuesta topped the 11-team field and claimed the WSC crown with 141 points, edging Canyons (135) and Glendale (128). SBCC was eighth with 47 points.
