In the final race of his high school career, Laguna Beach senior Nathan Lancaster toppled the school’s longest-standing track and field record at CIF finals on Saturday at Cerritos College. His 49.46 in the 400-meter dash was four ticks faster than the 49.5 Chris Paulsrud ran in 1963. Paulsrud competed in the 440-yard dash. His time of 49.5 reflects a conversion to meters.

Lancaster’s third place finish earned him a CIF medal and capped a stellar career for the two-sport star, who used his blazing speed and deceptive moves to rush for a school record 2,297 yards last fall in football. Lancaster also raised the Orange County single game standard to 547 yards.

Senior Kailar Pike saved the best jump of his career for last, clearing the bar at 6’3” to set a personal record and take home a medal for third place in the high jump.

Junior Janie Crawford also set personal record, earning a second place medal with a time of 2:16.84 in the 800 meters.

    Nate,
    Congratulations on your record breaking performance !
    Apparently being a sub 50 quarter miler at LBHS is not an easy thing to do. Continued success as you take your talent and work ethic to the next level.

    Cheer’s! Chris Paulsrud
