Madison’s Doton Ogundeji continues to lead state and national shot putters and Mt. Carmel’s Derek Morton has moved in front of California 800-meter runners.
Both are expected to take on some of the nation’s best in the annual Arcadia Invitational Friday and Saturday.
Ogundeji leads the nation with a throw of 65-4 1/2 and is 10th in the U.S. and fourth in California with a 180-foot waft in the discus.
Morton took the state lead with a 1:53.60 last week in a dual meet at Westview and is fifth in the country.
The Sundevils senior showed promise last year with bests of 1:57.80 and 4:18.16 in the 1,600 meters and cranked a 1:55.65 month ago in the Mt. Carmel Field and Distances invite.
