CLOVIS — The first day of trials at the CIF State Track and Field Championships are in the books and there will be no shortage of local athletes competing in Saturday’s finals at Veterans Memorial Stadium.

Vacaville’s Pattriana Perry led the charge after Friday’s trials, qualifying for the finals in both the girls 100-meter and 300-meter hurdles.

Perry ran 13.63 in the 100s and is the second-fastest qualifier behind Dublin’s Mecca McGlaston (13.62).

“It feels good to be back (at the state meet),” Perry said. “It’s a fast track. I kind of had a sloppy race. I’m hoping to come back (in Saturday’s final) and use the fast track and see what I can do.”

Bulldog teammate Jurnee Woodward will join Perry in the 100 hurdles final, just squeaking in as the ninth qualifier (14.03). Vacaville’s Dari Cook missed making the final with the 11th fastest time (14.10).

“I think that was a great time,” Woodward said. “I’m getting closer and closer to that 13. This was (a personal record), so I’m really proud of that. I feel very happy. We deserve to be there. We all made it here and we all deserve to be here.”

Cook was a little surprised she didn’t make the final the 100 hurdles.

“I’m not satisfied (with that time),” Cook said. “I ran faster last week. My leg is starting to feel better now so I was expecting to run faster.”

Perry was a little disappointed all three Bulldogs aren’t in the 100 hurdles final.

“I wanted to go out (into the final) with all my teammates. I wanted us all to be together in the finals and go out with a bang. I’m a little disappointed.”

Perry won her heat and was the second fastest qualifier in the 300 hurdles with a time of 42.01. Vacaville’s Woodward and Hannah Davis failed to make the final in the 300s. Woodward was 10th (42.82) and Davis was 18th (44.13).

Two athletes from the city of Fairfield also moved into Saturday’s finals.

Rodriguez High’s Megan Dulaney heads into the girls shot put finals as the fourth seed with a throw 45-1, nearly three feet farther than she threw last week when she finished third at the Sac-Joaquin Section Masters Championships.

The other is Vanden’s Tyler Koss, who was the eighth fastest qualifier in the boys 400 meters with a time of 48.33.

“There was quite a bit of wind on the back stretch,” Koss said. “It felt good (to run against California’s best). The surface is harder, kind of like the track last week (in Elk Grove). You get a little more bounce off of it. I tried to go pretty hard but that wind on the back stretch kind of killed my finish.

“I couldn’t see anyone so I just tried to stay out in front of everyone. This feels great. Knowing that I didn’t run my best, it was still good enough to get into the final. I just want to keep (the field) within reach and give it all I have at the finish.”

For Dulaney, it was about a little redemption from a year ago.

“I’m really happy that I got to throw (well at this meet) because last year wasn’t the best but this year was better,” she said. “I would be very happy (to earn a medal). I wasn’t feeling very well last week. I had the flu. This week I’m better, stronger and I practiced a lot more on my hip drive.”

Vacaville’s Brandi French also moved into Saturday’s shot put finals, qualifying fifth with a toss of 44-11 1/2.

Also advancing to Saturday’s finals was the Bulldogs’ Nia Vance, who was the 11th qualifier in the girls triple jump with a leap of 38 feet, one-half inch.

The Vacaville boys 4×400 relay team of Daniel Mewborn, David Mewborn, Elgin Lovell and Mykal Walker was fourth in its heat with a time of 3:17.60, qualifying eighth overall.

The Armijo High girls 4×400 relay team ran their best time of the season to set another school record. The team of Tyra Holt, Kolbi Quist-Richard, Gabriella Nathan Funk and Lovenie Dantes ran 3:56.95, breaking their old record of 3:57.47 they set last week at the Masters meet.

The effort was good, but not good enough to make the final. There were several teams under the 3:50 mark, including Long Beach Poly, which ran the second fastest time in the United States, posting a mark of 3:41.00. The Indians wound up 15th overall.

Others failing to make Saturday’s finals were Vacaville’s David Mewborn (100, 22nd, 10.95, 200 13th, 21.80) and the Vacaville boys 4×100 relay team (16th, 42.85).
