CLOVIS -- Castro Valley High's Nate Moore made history Saturday at the CIF state track and field championships at Buchanan High.

Moore, a senior, became the first boy in state history to win the triple jump and long jump in consecutive seasons.

Moore clinched that record with an impressive victory in the long jump. Moore took the lead on his first attempt with a leap of 24-7 3/4, then capped his win with his sixth attempt, a jaw-dropping mark of 25-8 3/4.

In the triple jump, Moore exploded for a national-leading mark of 50-10 1/4 on his first attempt, then went 50-5 on his second attempt before passing his third attempt to run in the 400 relay, in which the Trojans took second.

Then after the other competitors had finished, Moore jumped a personal record of 51-4 on his fourth attempt and 50-7 on his fifth try before passing his sixth attempt.

James Logan's Karsten Wethington set a huge PR of 50-7 on his final attempt for second place in the triple jump. That mark ranks third in the nation under all conditions according to DyeStat.com.

Wethington took seventh in the long jump with a mark of 22-11 1/4.
