NorCal Best at every event for upcoming Track and Field season

Just to be clear, I used last year's performances as a starting point. Some events have clear favorites (both boy's hurdles for example) and some have not so clear favorites. In those instances, I picked the more consistent performer. It's tough to just pick out one athlete in some events but that was my task. Feel free to continue the discussion in the comment section below.

Braden King ran a 8:56.89 3,200 at Arcadia.

Thanks for the above comments. In regards to the high jump, I picked the jumper that had multiple jumps at 5'6". As for Braden King, yes he did run a faster 3200 than Alex Mader in track but Mader had the better XC season as far as times. I think it's a coin flip between those two but there will be others that will be considered as well.

I posted King's time in the 3,200 because I thought the list was based on fastest PRs in the event. If I were to guess who would end up being the highest NorCal finisher in that event at state, my pre-season pick would probably be Zachary Ayers of Davis. He got healthy and fit in the cross country season, broke up the Newbury Park juggernaut at state and I would also expect to see Caden Carney and Sean Morello in the sub-9 group this season. Some incredible talent coming out of NorCal, can't wait for the upcoming track season.

Those are three definite possible names that could have excellent seasons and may end up as being the best in NorCal. I am also certain that somebody else may break out to join that list as well. Should be another fun season.
