After enjoying big performances at the CIF Southern Section track and field division prelims, a handful of local athletes will converge on Mount San Antonio College to participate in the division finals.
There will be plenty at stake for each contestant, beginning with trying to record qualifying marks today at Mount San Antonio College in Walnut to advance to the Masters Meet.
Field events will begin at 11 a.m. and running events will kick off at 1 p.m.
James Knowles of St. Francis High will take part in the 110 and 300-meter hurdles in the Division III race. Knowles, the reigning All-Area Boys' Track and Field Athlete of the Year and the reigning Mission League champion in each race, enters today's competition fresh off winning his heat in the 300 hurdles with a personal-record time of 38.12 seconds, which was third-fastest across the board, at the prelims on May 12. He also advanced in the 110 hurdles, placing second in his heat with the fourth-best time of the day (14.55).
