State track and field meet thrives in Clovis

The second running of the CIF State Track and Field Championships this weekend at Buchanan High's Veterans Memorial Stadium will bring considerably warmer weather, another stable of nationally ranked athletes and a Central Section group that could exceed last year's six gold medals.
