Valley teams poised for league meets this weekend

SAN LUIS VALLEY—San Luis Valley harries, throwers and jumpers will have one last bid at qualifying for the 2013 Colorado High School Activities Association Track and Field Championships which will take place at Jefferson County Stadium in Lakewood on May 16th, 17th and 18th.

The Valley’s Class 2A schools will be participating in the Southern Peak League Championships hosted by Center High School at Center Community Park today. The meet is scheduled to start with field events at 8:30 a.m. and running events are scheduled to start at 9 a.m. with the boys’ 3,200 meter dash.

The Valley’s Class 3A schools will be participating in the Intermountain League Championships tomorrow (Saturday) at Bayfield High School with a little twist. In addition to the five IML teams, Alamosa, Bayfield, Centauri, Monte Vista and Pagosa Springs, a Class 4A team will be in attendance.

Because of past digressions, Valor Christian, normally a Class 4A Metro League team, has been invited to participate in the Intermountain League meet and the invitation has been approved by CHSAA. They will not displace any IML results or score in the meet, but their marks will be forwarded to MaxPreps for rankings purposes.

This appears to be a good thing for IML teams as it will help push the pace in several key races including the 100 meter dash on the girls’ side. According to the MaxPreps rankings, Marybeth Sant has the fastest time in the event so far this year with a time of 11.38, also one of the top times in the nation.

Like last year, to qualify for the 2013 State Track and Field Championships an athlete must be ranked in the top 18 of a respective event this upcoming Sunday when all the meets and efforts from all student-athletes are tabulated and entered into MaxPreps.

If the track season were to have ended this past Sunday the following would have qualified for the 2013 State track meet:
