Girls track and field: Top athletes to watch

CONTRIBUTING WRITER

OCVarsity's Orange County girls track and field preview for the 2017 season. 

TOP THREE GIRLS ATHLETES TO WATCH

Rachel Baxter, Canyon: The reigning O.C. athlete of the year will again have all eyes on her as she enters her senior season. Baxter won the CIF-SS Division 2 championship and CIF State championship in pole vault, set the state record at the O.C. Championships and has eyes on possibly attaining the national record.

McKenna Caskey, Mater Dei: Caskey was one of the few who could push Baxter last season, but she did so on the biggest stage. Now a senior, Caskey, All-County last season, took second in the CIF State meet pole vault with a mark of 13 feet, 8 inches.

Erika Adler, Northwood: Adler joined track late last season but learned quickly. She finished second in the 3,200 meters at the Pacific Coast League Finals and just missed out on the CIF-SS Division 2 Finals. As a senior, Adler had a meteoric rise in her first cross country season to be named the Register’s girls cross country athlete of the year after finishing second at CIF State by just five-tenths of a second.
