The top finisher on the night was San Marcos junior Beau Allen in the boys high jump. He took fourth place at a height of 6-foot-8, clearing it on his first  attempt. He missed three tries at 6-10. State leader Sean Lee of Trabuco Hills won the event with a jump of 7-2.

Allie Jones of San Marcos earned fifth place in the 100 hurdles, running a 13.87. She finished seventh in the event at last year’s meet. Jada Hicks of Upland was the 2018 state champion in 13.35.

Jones, who is headed to Stanford, took seventh in the long jump with a leap of 18-05. The winning jump was 19-09.75 by Alysha Hickey of Coronado.

Devon Cetti finished his Santa Barbara High career with a seventh-place finish in the boys shot put with a mark of 57-9.25. State leader Daniel Viveros of Bakersfield-Liberty threw 62-5 for the gold. He also won the discus.

Santa Barbara coach Olivia Perdices was impressed how Cetti handled himself during the season and on the big stage.

"Devon's had a great run. He made some huge gains in maturity and handling big competitions and went a lot farther than most people expected,” she said. “I can't say enough about him as a student athlete and a man. I'm looking forward to seeing what he does at Cal Poly SLO.”

In the girls high jump Dos Pueblos junior Jose Morales cleared a season-best 5-6 and finished in eighth place. Senior Abbie Burke of Riverside Poly and sophomore Rachel Glen of Long Beach Wilson tied for first at 5-10.

Noozhawk Asks: What’s Your Question?

Welcome to Noozhawk Asks, a new feature in which you ask the questions, you help decide what Noozhawk investigates, and you work with us to find the answers.

Here’s how it works: You share your questions with us in the nearby box. In some cases, we may work with you to find the answers. In others, we may ask you to vote on your top choices to help us narrow the scope. And we’ll be regularly asking you for your feedback on a specific issue or topic.

We also expect to work together with the reader who asked the winning questions to find the answer together. Noozhawk’s objective is to come at questions from a place of curiosity and openness, and we believe a transparent collaboration is the key to achieve it.

The results of our investigation will be published here in this Noozhawk Asks section. Once or twice a month, we plan to do a review of what was asked and answered.

Thanks for asking!
