Auburn Mountainview’s Anthony Gonzales captured the javelin event with a record-breaking toss at the North Puget Sound League track and field meet at Auburn Memorial Stadium on Wednesday.

Gonzales, bound for Boise State University in the fall, unleashed a throw of 185 feet to set the school record. The mark is the sixth farthest this year for all schools in the state, second best in Class 4A and No. 1 in the West Central District

The top 10 finishers in each event advance to next week’s district championships at Sumner’s Sunset Stadium.

The NPSL meet concludes Thursday.

Auburn’s D’Angelo Washington won the high jump with a leap of 6-2. He finished third in the long jump at 21-8.
