Lots of girls will be defending their titles this year.
Santa Rosa’s Kirsten Carter will be back in both the 400 and 200 races that she won last year. I believe this will be her first open 400 of the year. She is also entered in the long jump and I would imagine the 1600 relay. Although she dominated the long jump most of last year it was Windsor’s Alyssa Stewart that was a surprise winner in 2015 as well as winning the triple jump and 100.
Stewart will be going for both jumps again this year but is skipping the 100. I’m sure she will be on the 400 relay which should be a great race with four teams under 51 this year lead by Casa Grande at 49.80.
Santa Rosa’s Delaney White will be going for her third 1600/3200 double, a feat only bettered by Montgomery’s Sara Bei’s four.
Three other girls will defend their individual titles. Aimee Holland, Santa Rosa in the 800, Maddie Call, Windsor high hurdles and Rebecca Plattus, Maria Carrillo high jump.

Only three boys are back to defend titles.
Maria Carrillo’s Jordan Scobey is in the 3200 to try and make it two but teammate Scott Kruetzfeldt is probably the favorite.
Santa Rosa’s Daniel Pride who earllier in the year ran 9:23.76 is not entered.
Santa Rosa has the other two defenders in Michael Horton in the pole vault and Delano Bell in the discus.
Some possible great battles may take place with Maria Carrillo senior Ian Herculson taking on Montgomery sophomore Jaymes Tischburn in the 100 and 200.
Another race that could be a good one to see is the 800 with Casa Grande’s Zachary Esponda and Santa Rosa’s Luca Mazzanti.
