The CIF Southern Section announced Monday that it has received permission from county health departments to hold track and field divisional championships at four different sites instead of one primary site.

Divisional finals will be held June 12 at Trabuco Hills (Division 1), Moorpark (Division 2), Estancia (Division 3) and Carpinteria (Division 4) high schools.

Qualifiers from the prelims June 5 at the same sites will advance to the finals. Spectators will be allowed, per California Department of Public Health and local county health department guidelines. Tickets must be purchased online through GoFan. The events also will be livestreamed.

There is no state championship in track and field this year.

Also, the Southern Section boys and girls individual tennis championships will be held at Seal Beach Tennis Center June 9-10 and 16-17.

The Los Angeles Unified School District has cleared the way for its schools to compete against teams outside of the City Section, which will enable teams to compete in the state regional playoffs and also give more opportunities for basketball teams to play Southern Section teams if their schedule permits.
