The debate will rage on about the finest state meet in the United States but no matter how you look at it, one of the best will take place this weekend at Buchanan HS which will host the 99th CA State track and field meet. This will be the 9th year in a row that the city of Clovis has hosted the state meet. The forecast for the meet is for highs of 91 for Friday and 96 for Saturday. Definitely not as hot as last year but still an issue for the distance runners running earlier in the evening.
Below are the favorites and contenders for each running and field event this coming Friday and Saturday in the order that they will take place starting on Friday. All photos are courtesy of Kirby Lee and www.imageofsport.com unless noted differently. The 3200 meter races will be finals only on Saturday. The times and marks noted after each team and individual are season best efforts and not necessarily from the section finals.
Field events preview will be posted next. The links following each event will be updated throughout the week.
