CLOVIS -- Castro Valley High's Nate Moore produced a performance Saturday at the CIF state track and field championships that will remembered in the record books.
The Oregon-bound senior became the first boy in state history to win the triple jump and long jump in consecutive seasons.
After winning the triple jump with a national-leading all-conditions mark of 51-4, with a barely wind-aided 2.1 meters-per-second reading, he was victorious in the long jump in spectacular fashion, setting a wind-legal personal record of 25-8¾. That mark leads the nation for wind-legal jumps, according to DyeStat.com.
"It's something no one can take away from me," said Moore about the record. "Last year was a shock. Now I'm just grateful that I was able to come out and win both again."
Moore showed again that he excels under pressure.
On his first triple jump attempt, he soared 50-10¼ (wind-legal). That was a huge mark. Not only was it farther than any high school athlete had jumped in the nation this season, but it also gave him needed breathing room.
Moore left the competition after the third round to compete in the 400-meter relay. He returned to the triple jump after the other competitors had jumped, and that's when he posted his mark of 51-4.
James Logan's Karsten Wethington was second at 50-7. He improved on four of his six attempts, with his best mark occurring on his last attempt.
Moore followed the same blueprint in the long jump as he used in the triple. He took the lead for good with his first attempt (24-7¾) and produced his national best on his final try.
De La Salle's Marquis Morris was also a state champion, as he won the 300-meter intermediate hurdles title in a personal-record 36.86 seconds.
The key word for Morris after the 300 hurdles race was redemption. He entered Saturday as the defending champion in the 110-meter high hurdles but finished second to Misana Viltz of Millikan.
"I got out of hurdle two (in the 300 hurdles) and I saw the whole field ahead of me, and I said, 'Let's get this, let's win,' " said the USC-bound Morris, who was second entering the final straightaway with 100 meters to go.
In the 110 hurdles, Morris also set a personal record of 13.68, but Viltz ran a national-leading 13.47. Morris' time ranks fourth in the nation.
"(This year) was definitely more special because I'm a senior," he said.
The Castro Valley boys 400 relay team crossed the finish line third but was elevated to second after a zone disqualification by Edison. The Trojans ran an outstanding time of 41.29.
Castro Valley placed second in the team standings with 28 points, two points behind champion Mater Dei-Santa Ana. De La Salle was third with 23 points.
Amador Valley's Conner McKinnon placed third in the 800 meters in a personal-record 1:51.64.
In the boys 1,600 relay, Hercules took fourth in 3:15.77 and Amador Valley was fifth in 3:16.15.
