As track and field hits stretch, a look at the state 18

Love it or hate it and there are more in the latter category in Eagle County, the state 18 in track and field is here to stay.

With little less than a month until the final regular season track meets for both Battle Mountain and Eagle Valley, the clicking on milesplit.com becomes more furious.

Highlights

The top 18 and ties, be it times or distances, qualify for the state meet and both the Devils and Huskies seem to be on course for good-sized contingents.

Among the highlights:

• Battle Mountain's girls 3,200-meter team is No. 1-ranked in 4A with Eagle Valley in fifth. Both teams are all but in as the Huskies 47 seconds and the Devils 30 ticks ahead of the 18th spot. Battle Mountain's ladies seem to be the best shot right now to become the first from the school to win a track state title since 2008, when the boys 4-by-8 of Tony Crisofulli, Connor Tedstrom, Jonny Stevens and John O'Neill did the trick. For Eagle Valley, Michelle Carbajal in 2014 in the triple jump is the school's last champ.

• Speaking of the 3,200 relay, the Battle Mountain boys punch in at sixth at eight minutes, 19.21 seconds, only around three seconds of the top pace. The field should go lower, as will the Huskies, given the history of the relay at the school. As a side note, the school, not the actual four runners who ran the qualifying time, qualifies for a spot at state in relays. Ergo, bet on some more juggling in all relays as the season progresses.

• Eagle Valley's Charise Crabb is pretty much qualified in the 100 and 300 hurdles. She is nearly a second-and-a-half ahead of No. 18 in the 100 and 2.5 in front of the qualifying time in the 300.

• Not surprisingly, the Huskies and Devils are well represented in the distances — the 800, 1,600 and 3,200, particularly on the girls' side. There will be a lot of movement in the last few weeks.

• Also not surprising is a bunch of Devils and Huskies in the pole vault. On a bipartisan note, Eagle Valley's Trever LaFramboise and Battle Mountain's Emmanuel Escobar are tied for sixth.

• The following is where everyone stands with their respective time or distance with the current qualifying number in parentheses.
