San Luis Obispo High’s Callum Bolger won the 3,200-meter race at the CIF-Southern Section Masters Meet on Friday at Cerritos College.

Bolger qualified for state with win, posting a time of 8:52.40. He’s less than a second off the fastest time posted in the state this year, 8:51.32, by Flintridge Prep’s Jack Van Scoter earlier this season.

Van Scoter finished second in 8:52.88 on Friday.

The top six in each event qualifies for state, and athletes meeting state qualifying marks not in the top 6 can enter the state meet as an at-large entry.

Paso Robles’ Codie Wilshusen placed 10th in the girls pole vault, clearing 11 feet, 7 inches, which met the state qualfiying requirements and may earn her an at-large bid. The winner was Canyon of Anaheim’s Rachel Baxter, who cleared 13-7, tying a Masters Meet record.

Kristen Thompson finished seventh, just missing qualfiying for state. Her mark of 133-7 was just three inches behind qualifier Amanda Troung of Esperanza. The state qualifying mark is 133-6, so Thompson could earn an at-large bid. Mission Viejo’s Emma DeSilva won the event with a mark of 144-10. Atascadero’s Brianna Villanueva was 12th with a distance of 125-7.

Arroyo Grande High School’s Eddie Chagoya finished 10th in the boys shot put, posting a mark of 53-03/4. Esperanza’s Bronson Osborn won with a mark of 68-11/2.

San Luis Obispo’s Anneke Moersdorf cleared 5-1 in the girls high jump and finished 16th. Hannah Hanson, of the Academy of Academic Excellence, cleared 5-5 and finished first.

A Masters Meet record fell Friday, when Vista Murrieta’s Michael Norman won the 200 in 20.23 seconds.

He missed the national record by 0.10 seconds.
