Four years later, the Sacramento-San Joaquin Section was organized. Eventually, it took in Solano County schools. The boys two-lapper is easily the most wide open of the distance events.
Army and Navy Academy's Alexander Monsivaiz -- who moved in from the state of Colorado to the San Diego-based military boarding school -- leads the state by more than a full second at 1: If Moulton's anywhere close down the last straightaway, he will almost certainly find a way to win. However, most of the state's top half milers — including Northern Section champ Dylan Chamberlen of Paradise — haven't met head to head this spring, so a major surprise could be in store.

Should both of the co-favorites falter, Central Section champion Isaiah Cantu of Hanford and vastly improved Alex McElwee of Arcadia, each focusing on single events, could surprise. In the baton events, Rio Mesa has been the story this spring. The Spartans recently held the state lead across the board in the 4x, 4x and 4x, with Blake Selig above, Rich Gonzalez photoCameron Roach, Darion Zimmerman and Drew Weisenberger playing big interchangeable roles.
Walker, the North Coast Section champion, is unbeaten in the highs against California competition this spring. As several of the state's other top hurdlers have encountered disaster in the qualifying rounds, not only has Walker emerged as a clearer favorite, but Gardena Serra's Lloyd Siscard has been creeping up the form charts as well.
That's great news for the Cavaliers, who could benefit from big bonus points in the hunt for the team title. The intermediate hurdles should be thrilling and unpredictable, as always. Damien's Jarrett Gonzales posted the performance of the year in this event with his Siscard was just one-hundredth of a second behind Hammond at Masters and will look to score key team points in that events as well. Cochran has been literally unbeatable in the discus this spring, winning all his meets and the most-coveted titles Arcadia, Mt.
All Cochran pretty much needs to do is make sure he gets a fair throw. Be warned, however, many times in state meet history we've seen a clear throws favorite encounter major setback. Vuncannon, a 5-foot, pound beatbox champion, has made major waves after recently taking up the event and moving to California this year; it would be a storybook season finish for the multi-talented teen.
The boys shot put is more wide open. Cochran is the state leader atheading up a trio of foot performers along with Kovar and Hunter-Simms tossing around the pound ball, but Arroyo Grande's Garrett Weinreich made a major statement by beating all the top names at last Friday's Southern Section Masters Meet.
Another big name to track is Gridley's Ryan Donnahoe, who powered out to a lifetime-best Miles Poullard of Colony -- the only 7-footer in the state this spring -- and California of San Ramon's Noel Frazier, a highly consistent performer, are additional top-line entries.
The pole vault has taken on an air of uncertainty as state leader Colin Barber of San Ramon Valley -- at 16 feet, 7 inches -- is injured and has been struggling of late.
The boys long jump has developed much interest in recent weeks, with a deep list of at least a half dozen footers taking shape. However, none has been truly consistent this spring.CIF State Track & Field 2011
Perhaps the biggest threat to win the crown could be a sophomore — Serra's Adoree' Jackson, who spanned a wind-aided at his league final, among the best marks by a California tenth grader in years.
The boys triple jump field is headlined by World Youth Championships competitor Jaelen Spencer of Sultana, whose Notre Dame, with sprint maven Khalfani Muhammad leading the and fields and representing in the short relay, is also right there, with dasher Eric McDaniel's potential for bonus team points in the looming large.
Rio Mesa, led by dazzling senior speedster Blake Selig, and Darren Fahy-led La Costa Canyon are among those harboring solid threats to land on the podium with a top-three team finish. Regardless of who the team champion ends up being, chances are very good that their identity won't be determined until all the 4x relay teams have crossed the line. That's where defending champion Cami Chapus of Harvard-Westlake takes on bronze medalist Nikki Hiltz of Aptos in the showdown of showdowns.
Everyone in the state — and across the country, for that matter — knows about Chapus, but Hiltz is every bit just as good. Both are strong, very athletic, and harbor nasty speed. Chapus has clocked 4: Those are two of the top four times nationally this spring and all indications are there's more in the tank.
If this comes down to a finishing kick after an honest pace, it's anyone's game and the all-time list will come under serious assault! From there, Colony's Xochitl Navarrete — the only girl ever to beat Sarah Baxter in high school competition, doing so at meters — and Palos Verdes' Rebecca Mehra are the best of the rest in an event where the Southern Section could dominate.
The meter battle might not end up to be much of one at the front, not with the way Simi Valley's Baxter is looking of late. The reigning cross-country national champion recently broke 4: She looked ultra-tough last weekend in winning the Southern Section Masters Meet in The great 'wild-card' entry in the is Buchanan phenom Hagen Reedy.
Not only is she an amazing talent; she might be the best clutch performer in the field and — as if she needed any help — she'll be competing on her home track in front of scores of family and friends. Talent absolutely litters the m entry list in what could become the deepest eight lapper in state meet history, with several girls capable of threatening On the topic of depth, we've never seen an meter state field as promising as this one, with a slew of kids capable of smashing the esteemed 2: But aside from all the hype and hoopla, it should by Harvard-Westlake's Amy Weissenbach and Templeton's Savannah Camacho likely going Weissenbach set a National Federation record 2: Camacho is capable of also dipping under 2: Mary's, fell victim to a CIF season-ending injury.
