If Jaycee Olsen has it her way, she'll be like a made-up model competing in the discus event Saturday in Clovis.
That's because the Corona del Mar High senior plans to have her make-up done before the finals of the CIF State Track and Field Championships so that she can still attend her prom. Of course, she has to make it there first.
Olsen is one of five local athletes competing in the state meet, which begins today with the preliminaries, at Buchanan High in Clovis.
CdM seniors Marisa Cummings and Melanie Powers are in the 3,200-meter race Saturday. Newport Harbor senior Jake Taylor is competing in the shot put and Mater Dei senior Scott Cook of Newport Beach is in the pole vault.
Olsen competes in the discus at 4:30 p.m. She'll try to make it to Saturday's finals.
"I'm nervous," said Olsen, who finished fourth at last week's CIF Southern Section Masters Meet after throwing 139 feet. "That's where the top-of-the line athletes will be. I'm just going to try my best."
