The CIF State Track & Field Championships are littered with the ruined reputations of area high school sprinters unable to keep pace with their Southern California counterparts.
Jesuit's R.J. Frasier just might be the exception. The senior ranks among the favorites in the 300-meter intermediate hurdles and the glamorous 100-meter dash at this week's meet in Clovis.
