Since joining the Glendale High boys' track and field team, Michael Davis has built an impressive resume.
Along with a handful of league championships won by the junior sprinter, there's an appearance in the CIF Southern Section Masters Meet for the first time in his burgeoning career. Davis' next major accomplishment will come today at the CIF State Meet, where he will make his inaugural appearance in the 200-meter preliminary race at Buchanan High's Veterans Memorial Stadium in Clovis.
He's on a hot streak, as his times continue to drop and his confidence rises. Davis will automatically qualify for the state final Saturday by either winning one of the four preliminary heats today or recording one of the next five fastest overall times.
The challenge and the environment couldn't be more exciting for Davis, one of 29 participants who will take to the track in the 200 between 8:50 and 9 p.m. today. The final will begin at 8:38 p.m. Saturday.
