Both Sea Kings also finished second in an event. The UCLA-bound Buckley’s time of 4:52.28 in the 1,600 was bettered only by Woodbridge’s Christine Babcock.
Bolus, who jumped 21-11 in the long jump, was just edged by Trabuco Hills’ Trevor Wightman by half an inch.
For Buckley, it was a welcome result after she was disappointed by her sixth-place finish in the 1,600 last weekend at the Arcadia Invitational. She also hadn’t run the 800 at an invitational since her time of 2:14.02 at the Irvine Invitational on March 8 broke that meet’s record.
On Saturday, she was second halfway through the race, but had an impressive kick on the second and final lap.
“Coach told me to decide a plan after 150 [meters], so I did,” said Buckley, who has the third-fastest girls’ 800 time in Orange County Championships history, set last year. “I just wanted to stay second or third, then I was going to kick the last 200, 300 meters. My time wasn’t that impressive, but I stuck to the plan, so I’m happy. And, I got first, so I’m happy as well.”
Buckley also ran the anchor leg of the meet-ending 4x400 relay. She, along with freshman Sarah Craig and juniors Tina Theriot and Claire Schmidt, placed third in a season-best 3:59.36.
“At the end of the day, to run a PR when your kids are pretty zapped, that was good for us,” CdM Coach Bill Sumner said.
Bolus, a junior who owns the CdM records in both the triple and long jump, said he nearly won both events Saturday, but was happy with his distances.
“I thought I had [the long jump] won, but [Wightman] came in from a different event and ended up having a big PR and beating me by half an inch,” he said.
CdM junior Kim Condino was fourth in the girls’ 800, in 2:19.37, while Craig ran a personal-best 59.37 seconds to place sixth in the 400. She said she’s hoping to run under 59 by year’s end.
