Arroyo Grande High’s Madison Jacobs and Garrett Weinreich aren’t going to the CIF state track and field meet in one event, but two.
Jacobs placed first in the girls discus and sixth in the shot put, and Weinreich won the boys shot put and placed fourth in the discus in the CIF-Southern Section Masters Track and Field Meet at Cerritos College in Norwalk on Friday, giving both a berth to the state championship meet in two different events.
Jacobs won the discus with a mark of 150 feet, 1 inch and threw 41-6 3⁄4 in the shot put, while Weinreich posted marks of 61-8 in the shot put and 179-11 in the discus. Weinreich finished third in the state shot put last year and is the top returning placer in that event.
Also for Arroyo Grande, Brandon Berguia qualified in the boys discus after throwing 174-4 for seventh place.
Never miss a local story.
San Luis Obispo’s Christine Hoffmann qualified in the girls 3,200 meters, running a time of 10 minutes, 31.73 seconds (a personal best) for seventh place, and Templeton’s Savannah Camacho qualified in the girls 800, finishing second in 2:10.26.

Arroyo Grande’s Jessica Morosoli was eighth in 2:15.37, breaking her own school record but just off the state qualifying standard of 2:13.62.
Connor Hall failed to move on in the boys pole vault for San Luis Obispo after finishing tied for eighth at 14-9, and Arroyo Grande’s Alex Mero placed 19th in the girls high jump (5-1).
