All eyes were on Jonathan Cabral as he settled into the starting block for the high school 300 hurdles Invitational Saturday morning in the first of his two events on the third and final day of the 53rd annual Mt. SAC Relays in Walnut.
One week earlier, the Oregon-bound senior from Agoura posted national-leading marks in the 110 and 300 hurdles at the Arcadia Invitational and spectators at Hilmer Lodge Stadium were eager to see whether he could top them.
Cabral had trouble with his stride in the first 100 meters but pulled away on the straightaway to win in 37.49 seconds, well off his personal-best 36.42 at Arcadia. Four hours later, he was back on the track for the 110 hurdles Invitational, which he won easily in 13.48.
He had run a personal-best 13.43 at Arcadia.
For the record: An earlier version of this report and its accompanying headline incorrectly referred to Jonathan Cabral as Johnathan.
