There is no denying that California each year hosts the best state meet in the nation. With only one division for one of the largest states, the yearly winners in each event can truly claim to be the one and only state champion.
Below you will find my picks for the Track and Field team of the decade for California based on their individual success at the state meet as well as their Personal Bests. Multiple state titles were given a higher priority and in the case of a toss-up, I looked at the better PB. I believe some events have slam dunk choices while other events can be debated fiercely so without delay, here are my picks for the all-decade California Track and Field team.
