"It's kind of a split-squad deal for us," Kay said.

Coach Eric Tweit said the young Sailors girls will be running mostly in frosh-soph races, but they do have senior Allison Krugman and junior Sophie Evans in the pole vault and junior Kasey Thompson in the shot and discus. Krugman's season-best height of 11-6 has her tied for 15th in the state.

Costa Mesa has most of its athletes on the girls' side with senior Hunter Strodel and sophomore Kristi Adams in the 1,600, as well as strong throwers like Punua Fesili and Ashley Tupailesa (shot put) and Catalina Lay (discus).

Sage Hill, which also has been on spring break, has just three varsity athletes competing. Senior team captain Katherine Nagasawa will be in the long jump and triple jump, and the Lightning's other senior team captain, Luc Angel, will be in the boys' pole vault.

Sage Hill Coach Khara Covington said she's also excited to see the progress of junior Jack Percival, who will be in the 800. Percival has raced other events in the past but this is his first year in the 800. His first time running the race, he won the Laguna Hills Invitational in 1:59.75.

"We were really excited," Covington said. "He's kind of an all-around great athlete. He could do any event and be great at it."
