Southern Section track and field finals set for Saturday at four sites
It will be two seasons without a state track and field championship and Southern Section Masters Meet because of COVID-19 restrictions. That’s the bad news.
The good news is the Southern Section divisional championships will resume on Saturday at four different sites instead of the usual single site.
Division 1 is at Trabuco Hills. Division 2 is at Moorpark. Division 3 is at Estancia and Division 4 is at Carpinteria. Running events for Division 1 start at 1 p.m. Division 2 starts at 4 p.m. Division 3 starts at noon. Division 4 starts at 1 p.m.
Pole vaulter Paige Sommers of Westlake, the national record holder, will be competing at the Division 1 championship. Sprinter Max Thomas of Servite will be the athlete to watch in Division 3. He had the fastest 100-meter dash time in last week’s prelims.
Newbury Park and Westlake athletes top California track and field performers.
Team championships will be awarded for boys and girls at each divisional meet.
