Roman Munoz

 Reaching the finals is a realistic goal for the King City distance ace, as Munoz will go into the State track and field championships 1,600 meters ranked 16th at 4:16.28.
 While the expected heat is always a concern for distance runners, Munoz is used to running in warm climate in south county.
 For the two-time state meet qualifier to get to the finals, it will take a personal best. What Munoz can not do is get stuck in a pack and get boxed in.
 At last week's Central Coast Section finals, he went out and took the lead from the start, building as much as a 25 meter cushion before part of the pack came back and caught him.
 Munoz wants each of his four laps to be in the 63 second range. If reaching the finals isn't motivation enough, he also wants the school record at 4:15.00.
 A CCS champion and top 10 finisher in last fall's State Division IV cross country finals, Munoz is just now hitting his stride after missing a month of training with a knee injury.
