Dunivan: Who to keep an eye on for track and field’s second half

There is still plenty of time in the track and field season to vault up the leaderboards, make the minor adjustments needed to gain an extra tenth of a second here or three inches in height there.

But with the season about at the midway point and the Mullen Runners Roost meet upcoming, here’s an list of local athletes that sit in the top 20 in the state in respective events. Keep in mind, the top 18 in each event for each classification qualifies for state (last two as alternates). So there will be plenty of other locals who will make the state cut when things are said and done. This list kinds of puts the best of the best all in one place.

This list is also compiled according to Milesplit state rankings through this past weekend, which I believe most if not all meets are posted to. It is by no means 100 percent accurate.
