2017: 19 Advance to State Track and Field Finals

CLOVIS–11 boys and 8 girls from the San Diego Section qualified yesterday for tonight’s 99th state track and field championships at Buchanan High.

Six, all-time County top 15 performances came amid gusty winds and a temperature in the high nineties when competition began at 5 p.m.

The breezes eventually eased and the thermometer had gradually cooled to the low eighties  when the final event was concluded near 10 p.m.

Poway’s Kayla Myers climbed to ninth all time when she cleared 12 feet, 6 inches, in the pole vault and was  one of 10 qualifiers at that height.

La Costa Canyon’s rising sophomore,  Karson Lippert, ran the 14th fastest 400 meters, closing strongly in the stretch to win his heat in :47.76.

McKenna Brown, Lippert’s teammate on the girls squad, ran smartly in a grouped pack in the 1600 meters and held on for fourth in her heat with a time of 4:51.72 that  ranks No. 12.

Brown was almost six seconds swifter than her 4:57.34 in the Section finals last week and almost three seconds better than her career best 4:55.66 in 2016.

La Jolla’s Sakura Roberson had the all-time No. 12 in the 800 with a 2:10.46 clocking.

The La Jolla girls 4×1600 relay team ran 3:53.32, which moved the Vikings to 14th  all-time, but they did not qualify.

Most impressive San Diego entry was Tri-City’s Matthew DeRoos, nursing a sore groin but outdistancing the field in the long jump at 24-4 1/4, an inch below his career best.

DeRoos, who was fifth in this event at 23-8 1/2 last year, withdrew last week from  the triple jump because of his injury and made only one other attempt in the shorter leap last night, reaching 22-10 1/2.

Mt. Carmel junior Quoi Ellis was the area’s other heat or field event winner, smoothly running a windless :21.30 in his 200 heat for No. 15 all time.
