CIF State Meet Preview: Distance Running Events

The best state meet in the nation adds another milestone as Buchanan HS will host the 100th CA State track and field meet. This will be the 10th year in a row that the city of Clovis has hosted the state meet. The forecast for the meet is promising in that we will get highs of 84 for Friday and 91 for Saturday. Definitely not as hot as the previous two years but still an issue for the distance runners running earlier in the evening, especially in the finals.

Below are the favorites and contenders for each distance running event. Photos are courtesy of Kirby Lee and 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.

The links following each event will be updated throughout the week.
