Pacific Division track finals

  An undefeated dual meet season doesn't hold a lot of weight other than pride. Chasing a title only counts at the league track and field finals.
 More than two decades after the school opened, Alvarez is chasing its first boys track and field title today, as it will go in as the favorites in the Pacific Division finals at Gilroy.
 As one member of the team uttered on twitter prior to the league trials, 'lets finish this.''
 Alvarez looked formidable at the Pacific Division trials on Tuesday. Based on the trail results, it is projected to produce points in 15 of the 16 events.
 Among the favorites is Joziah Garcia, who posted the top mark in the 200 and is in the mix in the 100 for the Eagles.
 Teammate Juan Murillo will go into the finals with the top times in both the 110 high hurdles and 300 intermediate hurdles.
 The Eagles girls program will look to repeat the feat, as they are the pre-meet favorites to defend their team title with Watsonville on their heels.
 Deaysia Gamble, a league champion as a sophomore in the 100 in 2014, posted the top mark at the trials in 13.00. Gamble and teammate Valerie Quinonez are the favorites in the long jump.
 A sleeper could be Monterey, who will score heavily in the distance events, but may be to thin in the field to challenge for supremacy.
