2016 Central Coast Section State Meet Contenders: Sprints & Hurdles

The CIF State Meet is arguably the One True State Meet among all the states of our nation, because ALL of California feeds into a single championship meet - no classifications, no separate sanctioning bodies for independent schools.  Only 3 athletes can advance to the state meet from most of the sections, including the Central Coast.  Below is a pre-season list of the contenders for those three berths in the sprints & hurdles.  Don't forget to check out yesterday's articles on the Central Coast Section distance runners!
