We are sampling all-comers meets each Saturday for flavor, spirit, timing, energy and, well, we just really, really missed track & field.
So, it's all good now, I tell ya. And it's getting even better
For five consecutive Saturdays, selected all-comers meets will serve as qualifiers for the 2018 CA Winter Championships scheduled for Feb. 17 at Arcadia HS.
Laguna Beach and Riverside King were the first two designated qualifier-meets, the first two of 19 scheduled qualifiers scattered across CA.
