Hornet standout Justin Walker won the Long Jump at the Southern California Regional Championships held at Cerritos College on Saturday.
Walker took home the first place medal with a leap of 71.6 meters. In the 110M hurdles, Walker placed second just missing another first place finish. Mt. SAC's Jasher Foster edged him out with a 14.29 finish, (a .35 improvement). Justin will have a chance to win both events when he competes in the State Championships this weekend.
The FC 4x100 Relay team (Jackson Mirth, Marquis Rogers, Justin Walker, and Taj Wilson) just missed a bid to qualify for the State Championships taking 6th place. The team did turn in their best time of the season at 41.78.
