That, along with earning the top spot in three area events, cemented him as the Examiner male athlete of the year. Lyburtus qualified to state in the 110 hurdles and long jump. He has the top area time in the 110 hurdles (14.32), 300 hurdles (39.22) and the best long jump (22-9 1/4). (EXAMINER FILE PHOTO | AARON LABATT)
