Ross, a freshman from Steele Canyon High School, got out a throw of 175 feet, 9 inches (53.58 meters) to place second in the event at the CCCAA State Championships hosted by Mesa at Merrill Douglas Stadium.

He finished only behind state champion Alvin Sung from College of San Mateo (189 feet, 6 inches / 57.76 meters).

The previous weekend, Ross captured the Southern California javelin title with a throw of 188 feet, 0 inches (52.29 meters) at the SoCal Community College finals at Antelope Valley College in Lancaster.

Mitchell, Grossmont's sophomore first baseman from Granite Hills High School, a transfer from San Diego State University, turned in a 4-for-9 performance as the Griffins dropped back-to-back heartbreakers on the road to Cypress over the weekend in one of two Southern California Divisional best-of-3 playoff series.

Mitchell went 2-for-4 with two doubles and scored a run as the Griffins lost game 1 by a 6-5 score on Friday.

On Saturday, he was 2-for-5 with a home run and four RBIs as the Chargers held off a G-House rally, winning 11-10 to negate a possible third game on Sunday and advance to this upcoming weekend's CCCAA State Championship Final Four in Fresno.

Honorable mention was awarded to Cuyamaca track & field athletes Alex Templeton and Dane Randolph.

Templeton, a freshman from Poway High School who also punts for the Grossmont College football team, cleared 6-9 ½ (2.07 meters) for the second straight meet to place third in the high jump at state meet. Mt. SAC's Joseph Bryant won the state title at 7 feet, ¼ inch (2.14 meters). Templeton's mark tied for second best in the competition but he lost out on a second-place finish because he had more misses.

Randolph, a freshman from Monte Vista High School, improved his time by 12 seconds from the Southern California finals as he placed sixth in the 3,000-meter steeplechase at the state finals with a 9:42.83 time. College of the Canyons' Jason Hillquist, the Southern California champion, took home the state meet gold medal by running 9:16.04.
