Valley athletes win state gold
The CIF State Track and Field Championships provided all the excitement and drama fans expected Saturday.
Two Valley student-athletes were among those to earn gold medals on the final day of competition at Veterans Memorial Stadium.
Tulare Union's Kazmeir Allen won the state championship in the 100 meters by the slimmest of margins. Allen, headed to UCLA on a football scholarship, ran a 10.44 while second place finisher Asani Hampton was at 10.45. It was that close.
Fowler's Jocelynn Budwig came away with two medals. Budwig won the state championship in the girls shot put, and finished third in the discus.
