VOTE: Girls Performer of the CIF-State Track & Field Finals

Congratulations to both Keilee Hall of Christian Brothers (SJ), last week's co-top vote-getter in the MileSplit Girls Track and Field Athlete of the Week poll.

* * *

Keilee, a senior, took over the state lead in the 300m hurdles with a 42.02 PR at the Sac-Joaquin Section Masters. She also PR'd in the 100m hurdles, running 14.00 (2.5) for fourth in the finals.

Keille received an overwhelming 61 percent of the vote in last week's statewide poll!!! 

Y'Vette Harris, a senior at Lincoln-Stockton (SJ) and Ellie McCuskey-Hay, a freshman at St. Ignatius (CC) each received 10 percent of the vote.

Congratulations to all athletes whose performances warrant consideration in this weekly poll. And thanks to everyone who voted to support these amazing athletes.

Who's next?

This week, we ask you to select the top girls performer from the 103rd CIF-State Track and Field Championships held over the weekend at Veterans Memorial Stadium in Clovis.

Below find eight candidates for your appreciation and votes. (Unfortunately, we are limited to a max of eight options in our polls and had to leave a handful of other deserving athletes off the list.)

Check out the resumes below and then VOTE in the FanPower module at the bottom of the page. That is where you choose the top girls track and field athlete of the 2023 State Meet.

Because we had a technical issue earlier this week, we're keeping the poll open until Monday at noon. Be sure to vote.


This week's candidates
