MTAL track finals

Bringing the Mission Trail Athletic League track and field championships to King City means gusty winds this afternoon.
Yet, that's unlikely to derail the host Mustangs or Santa Catalina in their bids for a fourth consecutive league boys and girls team title today.
The Cougars posses one of the top sprinters in the Central Coast Section in reigning 100, 200 and 400 meter league champion Mikayla Revera.
Adding to their strength this spring is the addition of freshman Laurel Wong, who is among the elite in the CCS in the pole vault at 11-9, and is the favorite in the long jump.
The Cougars are expected to score heavily in the hurdles with Carolina Bishop the class of the MTAL in the 100 hurdles and 300 low hurdles.
King City's stronghold on the boys team title starts with a dynamic distance core, anchored by Top Eight 1,600 meter champion Roman Munoz.
A CCS Division IV cross country champion last fall, Munoz will be the favorite today in the 1,600 as well as the 800 and 3,200.
The Mustangs are expected to produce multiple points in the weight events with Steven McEnroe, a state qualifier last year in the discus, and teammate Jarod Davis.
Pacific Grove could be a sleeper behind junior sprinter Zack Miller, the class of the MTAL in the 200 and 400, and the favorite in the long jump.
Carmel's Zach Rossi has the top marks in both hurdle events, as does UC Santa  Barbara bound Nick Lombardi in the triple jump and high jump. He will also challenge Miller in the long jump.
If Greenfield's Evelin Meza triples, she will be the favorite in the 800, 1,600 and 3,200 while Pacific Grove sophomore Kulaea Tulua will chase titles in the triple jump and long jump.
