Although there are freshmen who not only make it to Masters in the CIF Sac-Joaquin Section Track and Field championships, but also go on to State from there; it is a tremendous feat; especially considering the SJS is the second largest section with 197 schools represented.

Lincoln High’s Destiny Everett was one of those freshmen who made it to Masters, although she did not qualify for state. The freshman ran a 2:24.57 in the girls 800-meter trials, but did not advance to the finals.

As for the graduating senior athletes, the 2016 season did feature some outstanding efforts. Gold indicates first place, silver second place and bronze third.
