FAIRFIELD — The second of three steps toward the CIF State Track and Field Championships is this week with the Sac-Joaquin Section divisional meets.
There’s also a little softball and baseball.
Here’s a look at this week’s action:
The unbeaten Vacaville High softball team takes on Pleasant Grove of Elk Grove in the Sac-Joaquin Section Division I semifinals at the Sacramento Softball Complex. The unbeaten Bulldogs (26-0-1) extended their winning streak to 22 games by blanking Pitman of Turlock 9-0 and Gregori of Modesto 6-0 in Saturday’s opening rounds.
A win on Monday would propel Vacaville into the winner’s bracket final against either Merced or Rocklin on Tuesday with the championship scheduled for Wednesday.
The Vacaville Christian baseball team has a leg up on Woodland Christian in the best-of-three SJS Division VI semifinals after a 4-0 win on Saturday. The teams meet in Stockton on Tuesday at Stagg High for one or two games with the Falcons needing one win to advance to the title game against either Bradshaw Christian of Sacramento or Mariposa on May 26.
The SJS track and field trials feature Division I at Elk Grove and Division II-III at Bella Vista of Fair Oaks. The top eight qualifiers advance to the Division I finals, the top nine to the Division II-III finals, both to be held on Friday.
The Sac-Joaquin Section Division I track and field finals are at Elk Grove with the eight finalists and top four consolation finals finishers advancing to next week’s SJS meet, also at Elk Grove.
The SJS Division II-III finals take place at Bella Vista with the top seven finishers moving on to the Masters meet.
