UPDATE 9:49 PM: Aaliyah Wilson--remember she fell in the hurdles--rebounded in the 100 meter sprint to get into today's championship. The junior runs an 11.85 to place fifth and get on the podium.

In the boys 800 meter race, Highland's Moises Medrano said yesterday he pulled up at the end to save himself for today's race. It paid off as he takes home third place and the bronze medal.

In the shot put Daniel and Alicia Viveros become the first siblings from Kern County to medal in the same meet. Daniel took home a bronze medal while Alicia finished fifth.

UPDATE 5:27 PM: Corbin Chronister takes home Kern County's first medal of the day. The Liberty senior placed sixth in the discus finals.


With more than 800 high school athletes from across the state competing in the California track & field championships, nine Kern County track stars move on to the championship round Saturday with a chance to medal.

Liberty will have the most athletes vying for a shot. Corbin Chronister will compete in discus, Daniel & Alicia Viveros will compete in the boys & girls shot put finals while junior Seth Krauss will go in the high jump finals. 

Stockdale's Iesha Hamm will compete in the girls high jump. She'll be joined by fellow Mustangs Marcus Mota in the boys 3,200 finals and Aaliyah Wilson in the girls 100 meter sprint. Wilson, who fell in the 100 hurdles, responded a little more than an hour later by winning her 100 M heat with a time of 11.75. 

Finally a pair of runners will represent Kern County in the 800 meter finals with Highland's Moises Medrano going for the boys and Bakersfield's Mikaela Romanini going for the girls.
