This article highlights the results of second-round dual as part of the MileSplitCA March Madness Virtual Meet Tournament. Virtual meets are scored based solely on 2020 results using the standard dual meet scoring points format of 
5-3-1 for individuals and 5-0 for relays. Athletes are scored in no more than four events (although the program that processes the meet scores does not have access to individuals in a relay). Teams are limited to three athletes per event. Stay with us for the entire tournament to see which boys and girls teams reign supreme in this virtual meet format.

No. 2 Jesuit (SJ) vs. No. 18 Mission Viejo (SS)

With senior Jaycen Cash picking up three event wins -- two in field events -- and Mission Viejo claimed 26 of 27 points in the high, long and triple jump in upsetting second-seeded Jesuit in a second-round boys virtual meet. 

Of those three events, the Diablos took eight scoring spots by seven different guys. Cash was the only one to score more than once. 

Depth was on full display for Mission Viejo in a 114-22 first-round rout of South Hills (SS) and it was that depth again that proved the difference here. Mission Viejo had five separate event winners, with Cash's trifecta in the 110m hurdles, long jump and triple jump the Diablos' lone multiple winner.

Junior Peter Costelli was first in the 100m and second in the 200m, senior John Burns won the 300m hurdles and was second in the 400m, sophomore Simeon Gillian won the long jump, and junior Bryce Bushnell won the 200m.

Jesuit got individual event wins in the 400m (Martin Smith), 800m (Chase Gordon), 1600m (Matt Strangio) and 3200m (Jacob Swanson). In addition, senior Cooper Shults swept the throws.
