Very good Day 1 for area at CIF State Track

It was more the norm for area athletes to qualify for finals than not to qualify.

Here’s a look at how San Bernardino County and Inland Valley athletes did on Day 1 Friday at Clovis Buchanan High. Between the two areas, 18 of 23 prelim entries qualified for finals. Two others, Barstow’s Isaac Chavez and Apple Valley’s Daniel Rosales are in the 3200 finals today because there are no prelims.
