Track and field: Fast, but no record for Agoura's Jonathan Cabral in 110 hurdles

June 3, 2011 |  6:46 pm

Agoura's Jonathan Cabral obliterated the competition but couldn't top his own personal record in his 110-meter hurdle preliminary heat Friday during the state track meet at Clovis Buchanan High, finishing in 13.58 seconds.

That was off the wind-aided 13.27 Cabral posted last week at the Southern Section Masters Meet and Cabral's wind-legal personal best of 13.43. But consider this: It was nearly a second faster than the next finisher in his heat (Richmond's Kenneth Walker, 14.35) and more than a half-second faster than the second-place finisher in all heats (San Diego Scripps Ranch's Jacob Hare, 14.09).

Also qualifying from the Southern Section for Saturday's championship was Indio's Kiethyon Moten (14.28), but frankly, Cabral is going to have to fall or pull a hamstring not to defend his title in this race.
