CCS girls track

 Mikayla Revera doesn't need to make a statement in Saturday's Central Coast Section trials. But the Santa Catalina sprinter just might.
 A two-time state meet qualifier in the 400, Revera will go into the section trials with the top mark at 56.00.
 Bound for Sacramento State on a track scholarship, the senior has a career best of 54.98, compiled at last year's state meet.
 Revera's message may come in the 200 as her MTAL winning time of 25.83 has her seeded No. 10 in the section. Only eight advance to the CCS finals.
 No need to panic. Revera has a season best of 24.76, which would put her in the top two. Attaining a good lane for the finals is critical.
 Chasing Revera in both events will be Brooke Oleson of Salinas, whose 200 time of 25.07 puts her into state meet contention.
 A CCS finalist last season in the 400, Oleson comes in ranked fourth at 58.78 in the 400. Last spring the junior dipped under 57 seconds.
 Moving from the 400 to the 300 low hurdles has paid dividends for Gabilan Division champion Kate Riordan, who is ranked seventh in the hurdles at 46.31.
 In the field, keep an eye on sophomore Laurel Wong, who is not only ranked No. 1 in the section in the pole vault at 13-feet-2, but is ranked in the top five in the state.
 Having competed in four events for MTAL champion Santa Catalina two weeks ago, Wong will turn her attention to the pole vault, along with the 400 relay.
 Alvarez's Tyshell Johnson has been ranked among the top three in the CCS all season, as she will go into the trials ranked third at 37-11 1/2.
 If you're looking for sleepers, keep an eye on Santa Catalina's Avery Blanco in the triple jump, Carmel's Jessica Dilullo in the high jump and Salinas' Alexa Aguirre in the discus.
