It's hard to believe that the 2016 Track and Field season is fast approaching so that means it's time for the Track and Field previews. In the next month or so, look for previews for different Northern California sections and track/field events. Who are the state meet contenders in each section? Who are the NorCal athletes or teams with the talent to compete with the best at the California State Meet? Who are the best Track and Field athletes (male and female) in NorCal? Who will be the most improved? What is the strongest event in NorCal? What is the toughest event in any NorCal section to qualify for the state meet? Feel free to comment below. I will start out with the NCS distance state contenders first. Photo to the left of Valley Christian SJ thrower Elena Bruckner is courtesy of Jim Gensheimer.
