LAKEWOOD -- Fort Lupton's Cicero Johns placed in two more events at the state 3A track-and-field meet Saturday at Jeffco Stadium.

Johns wound up second in the high jump with a best leap of 6 feet 4 inches. He tried three times to clear 6 feet 5 inches but missed each try. The school record is 6 feet 6 1/2 inches. Johns placed sixth in the state 4A high jump last year. Zach Boyd wound up 10th in the high jump at 5 feet 11 inches.

Johns also wound up seventh in the 110-meter hurdles with a time of 16.02 seconds.

FLHS' 4-by-400-meter relay team did not qualify for the finals.
