The Week Ahead: A little baseball and a lot of track

FAIRFIELD — You know the school year’s coming to an end when you can count the number of remaining sporting events on one hand.

Three of them are this week. Here they are:

Monday

The Vacaville Christian baseball team looks to win its first Sac-Joaquin Section title and give the school two blue section championship banners in the same school year when it takes on Sierra Delta League rival Bradshaw Christian for the Division VI crown at Lodi’s Tony Zupo Field.

The Falcons girls volleyball team swept Bradshaw Christian for the SJS Division V title in November, giving the school eight section championships.

This spring, the Pride won the two SDL meetings between the two schools and are the defending Division VI champs, having won two of the last three titles and reaching the championship game in the other.

Thursday

The two-day SJS Masters Track and Field Championships at Elk Grove High opens with the trials.

In events with three heats, the three heat winners and the next five fastest finishers advance to Friday’s finals. Four-heat events will have the heat winners and next four fastest move on.

The top eight trials finishers in field events advance to the same-day finals.

Several area athletes are seeded highly, most notably Vacaville’s Pattriana Perry and Jurnee Woodward, who are ranked first and second, respectively, in both the 100-meter low (14.16 and 14.19 seconds) and 300 low hurdles (42.69 and 42.79). In fact, their times from last week’s Division I finals are already under the at-large qualifying times (14.23 and 43.54) for next week’s CIF State Championships.

Vacaville’s girls 4×400 relay team is also seeded first at 3:46.92 and also easily beats the at-large qualifying time of 3:51.27.

Another top seed is Rodriguez’s Megan Dulaney, who won the girls Division I shot put with a toss of 45 feet, 10 1/2 inches, a mark that easily tops the at-large distance of 41-2.

Vanden likewise has several high seedings after winning the Division II-III title. Tyler Koss is seeded highest in the boys 400, third at 48.45 seconds. He’s also tied for fifth in the 200 (22.16) and the 4×100 relay team, on which he runs a leg, is seeded fourth (42.73).

The Vikings’ Malia Bryant is seeded fourth in the girls 400 (56.71).

Friday

Simply put, trips to the state meet, to be held June 6 and 7 at Buchanan High of Clovis, are on the line. The top three finals finishers and those who meet at-large qualifying times and marks move on.
