GLENDALE — From sprints to relays and jumps to vaults, the five local boys' track and field teams appear to have their bases covered.
With the first starter's pistol set to go off Thursday, the athletes are ready to step to the starting line and hunt down a league championship and qualify for the CIF division finals.
To get there, they must first get through an assortment of nonleague and league meets and invitationals.
Each team will soon find out where they stand.
At Crescenta Valley, the Falcons appear to once again have a balanced team with sprinter/jumpers Parker Averill, a junior, and senior Bryan Yaung in the mix. Also back are junior James Maturan in the 400-meter event, junior distance runner Michael Duncan, senior Levi Walker in jumps and relays and senior high jumper Andrew Roide.
