Figuring out the state's five weakest track and field events, especially for the girls, was actually tougher than the five strongest. There are less than a handful of events -- four to be exact -- where a Californian isn't among the Top 3 nationally. So really, we're talking about events where our state record compares just a little bit less favorably to those of other states. In other words, there is no such thing as a "soft" girls state record in the Golden State, just records that are a bit less dominant than others in comparison to other states.
We're using Jack Shepard's lists along with the National Federation list for backup. Remember, though, it's just one person's opinion.
