Top 15 Individuals from 2017 California Track and Field Season

It's hard to believe that it is already 2018 but ready or not, we are going to reflect on the 2017 California Track and Field season. With the graduation of so many terrific athletes each year, you would think California would eventually have a down year. That was definitely not the case last year as several all-time best athletes laced them up throughout the season to establish some eye-popping marks. Coming up with more than 15 athletes was a piece of cake. Narrowing it down to 15 and then placing them in order, not so easy. In fact, my list ended up with more than 15 athletes with some creative juggling. Some athletes were slam-dunk choices while others made the list based on their body of work during the season, some end of the season and some with a monster mark or two. I know not everybody will agree with all my choices so feel free to add your own athletes in the comment section below. I am sure some of you will also debate the order so if you have a different order in mind, let me know as well. Don't worry, I won't be offended.
