“If he can get a good jump, he moves on,” Sumner said. “He can normally on any given day jump 46 [feet]. Forty-seven, he jumps on a good day.”

A 47-foot leap might get Bolus to his first state meet. The top five finishers in each event at Masters qualify for state.

Cummings barely advanced in the 1,600 to her first Masters.

The junior recorded the third-fastest time in Division III. When officials combined all the times from each 1,600 race, she was tied for 11th with sophomore Dynasty Gammage of Long Beach Poly, who competed in Division I.

“The first goal was to see if we could move some [girls] on [to Masters] … and the other was [for them] to break five minutes,” said Sumner, who saw three CdM runners fall short. “[Cummings] did both of those.”

CdM’s Kim Condino finished second in the 800 in 2:19.99 and fifth in the 1,600 in 5:02.40, a personal record. Tina Theriot was third in the 800 in 2:17.04 and Sarah Keddington was fourth in 2:17.38 for the Sea Kings.
