FAIRFIELD — The time is now or never – at least for the seniors.

The CIF State Track and Field Championships get underway with the trials Friday at Veterans Memorial Stadium on the campus of Buchanan High in Clovis, with the top 12 finishers in field events and the top nine finishers on the track advancing to Saturday’s finals.

Field events get underway at 3 p.m. Friday, with action on the track starting at 5 p.m. Field event finals begin at 4:30 p.m. Saturday, the running events at 6 p.m. The top six finishers in all events earn medals.

There’s no shortage of local prep athletes competing, but the charge is led by Vacaville, especially in the girls hurdle events.

The Bulldogs’ Pattriana Perry enters the state meet as the fastest seed in the 100-meter hurdles (13.76 seconds) after winning the Sac-Joaquin Section Masters Championships last Friday at Elk Grove High. Daria Cook has the seventh fastest time heading to state (14.06), with fellow Bulldog Jurnee Woodward 11th (14.29).

Perry, Cook and Woodward went 1-2-3 at last week’s Masters championships.

It’s more of the same in the girls 300 hurdles, with just a slight change.

Perry comes in as the sixth seed (42.22), Woodward the ninth seed (42.79) and Hannah Davis the 12th seed (42.96).

Vacaville’s David Mewborn will be competing in two events, coming into the 100 meters as the 20th seed (10.90) and the 200 as the 17th seed (21.89).

Joining forces with her Bulldog teammates will be Nia Vance in the triple jump. She’s the sixth seed after winning the Masters title with a personal best leap of 38-9 3/4.

Last but not least for Vacaville is Brandi French, She will compete in the girls shot put as the sixth seed after winning the Masters championship with a toss of 43-7 1/4,

Joining French in the shot put will be Rodriguez High’s Megan Dulaney. She enters the competition as the 10th seed (42-9 1/2), but has thrown 45-10 1/2 this season, which would put her fourth on the state’s seeding list.

Vanden’s Tyler Koss will be looking to make the finals – and possible earning a medal – in the boys 400. He was third in the Masters meet with a lifetime best of 47.41, which earned him the seventh seed heading to state.

The Armijo girls 4×400-meter relay team will wrap up the action in the trials in the second-to-last event, Friday. The team of Lovenie Dantes, Gabriella Nathan-Funk, Tyra Holt and Kolbi Quist-Richard were third last week at Masters with a time of 3:57.47. That earned them the No. 22 seed. Soso Amatoru and Adrien York will travel with the team and coach Dave Monk as alternates.
