2A boys state meet
Kevin Meier of Oakland soared 45-1½ to edge Jefferson's Cesar Sepulveda (44-9) in a thrilling triple jump duel.

Central Linn's DiSean Hernandez set the meet record of 44-7½ in 2015 but Sepulveda is the meet record-holder now as he had a wind-legal reading on his best jump while Meier's winning leap had a 2.1 meters per second tailwind, just over the allowable limit of 2.0 for record purposes. Meier also finished fourth in the pole vault at 12-6. Monroe's Cristian Garcia repeated as the shot put champ with a throw of 49-11½, and teammate Zach Young finished fourth in the javelin at 156-2.
