VIDEO: State track previews -

The CIF State Track and Field Championships begin Friday in Clovis, and Kern County has some serious medal threats. Start with Stockdale sophomore Blake Haney, who is among the national leaders in the 1,600 and 3,200 meters. But that's not all. There are 24 local qualifiers in 30 events, plus two relay teams, so Friday's preliminaries will be full of Kern action. Several have a better-than-average shot of qualifying for Saturday's finals, which are for the top nine only.

The major headliners — Haney, his teammates Cameron Miller and Evan Eggenberg, Bakersfield triple jumper Scotty Newton and Burroughs thrower Jayson Kovar — are on the boys side. Here's a boys preview from myself and The Californian's Louis Amestoy.
