Gyulay won the long jump (21 feet, 1/2 inch) and the triple jump (43-7). He was the third leg in the 4x100-meter relay that won and set an Academy League meet record, 43.95 seconds.

The top three in each event qualified for the CIF Southern Section Division IV preliminaries at Carpinteria High May 15.

Junior Luke Angel won the pole vault (11-0) because he had the least misses after the event was cut short due to darkness.
Jack Percival, who was on the 4x100 relay team, finished second in the long jump (20-7 1/2 ) and third in the 400 (52.51).

“With him we really did expect to win [the Academy League title],” Covington said. “We lost significant points with him going down because he also competes in the 4x400 relay.”
