Seven Area Athletes Chase State Qualifying Berths at CIF Masters Meet

Erica Schroeder of San Marcos seeks her third trip to the CIF State Track and Field Championships on Friday night at the Southern Section Masters Meet at Arcadia High.

Schroeder is one of seven area athletes who are vying for top-six finishes in their respective events to advance to the State Meet in Clovis next weekend.

Schroeder, the state champion in the 800 meters as a sophomore, enters the state qualifying meet with the third best time from last week’s Southern Section Divisional Finals. She ran 2:14.42 to win the Division 2 championship. Division 1 champion Jacquelyn Hill of Etiwanda is the top qualifier at 2:12.05 and Malina Yago of Marymount is second with a time of 2:13.04.

The University of Washington-bound Schroeder has a personal record of 2:07.08, which she ran to win the state title as a sophomore in 2015. She ran 2:08.48 at last year’s Masters Meet.

Brian Nnoli of San Marcos is the No. 2 qualifier in the boys triple jump at 47-02.25, the winning mark at the Division 2 Finals. The senior has improved his marks over the last five meets, going from 45-04.50 at the last dual meet of the regular season to 46-1.75 at the County Championships, 46-7 at the Channel League finals, 46-10 at the Division 2 Prelims and 47-02.25 at the Finals. The top qualifier at the Masters is CJ Stevenson of Great Oak at 48-03.25.

Spencer Kemmerer, the Division 2 champion from Dos Pueblos, is the No. 4 qualifier in the boys high jump at 6-6.25. The top qualifier is Sean Lee of Trabuco Hills at 6-10.

Noozhawk Asks: What’s Your Question?

Welcome to Noozhawk Asks, a new feature in which you ask the questions, you help decide what Noozhawk investigates, and you work with us to find the answers.

Here’s how it works: You share your questions with us in the nearby box. In some cases, we may work with you to find the answers. In others, we may ask you to vote on your top choices to help us narrow the scope. And we’ll be regularly asking you for your feedback on a specific issue or topic.

We also expect to work together with the reader who asked the winning questions to find the answer together. Noozhawk’s objective is to come at questions from a place of curiosity and openness, and we believe a transparent collaboration is the key to achieve it.

The results of our investigation will be published here in this Noozhawk Asks section. Once or twice a month, we plan to do a review of what was asked and answered.

Thanks for asking!
