California State Track and Field Meet: Running Events Preview

It's hard to believe that California just held their first state swimming championship in history considering the talent and depth of swimmers that have originated from the state. The same can't be said for the top track and field athletes as they will be participating in the 97th annual CA State track and field meet at Buchanan High School.

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 The favorites are pictured unless noted differently below. 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.
